WW2 in the Local Area (100th Bomb Group)

Class 6 spent the morning with Clive, an expert on WW2 who collects military uniforms and vehicles. He spoke to the children about the 100th Bomb Group who were stationed at Thorpe Abbott’s airfield and told them what life was like for the American troops who came across here during what became known as the ‘Friendly Invasion’. The children had the opportunity to try on items of clothing that would have been worn by the men during their missions. It was a fantastic morning – the children were fascinated asked lots of thoughtful questions.
