Airfields and their Memorials in East Anglia
Most Airfields have a memorial of some description or other and these are pictured here. The memorials do not usually bear any names of those who lost their lives in the line of duty.
Many small villages however have small memorials to airmen who died when their aeroplane crashed, these too are listed here at their station rather than where they crashed and most of those do bear the names of the dead. There are also a few of them on the last page.
Where additional useful information can be found a link is offered. Hopefully they will continue to work.
The AAF number (in parenthesis) is the American Air Force's designation number where appropriate.
Not all memorials have yet been discovered by the author and information about any missing memorials will be gratefully received.
