Disused fuel bowser
Disused fuel bowser
This USAF fuel-servicing semi-trailer is parked beside the main runway. It was built in 1954 and was presumably surplus to requirements by the mid 1960s. It would seem to have been refurbished for civil use by farm machinery dealers LE Tockwell Ltd at nearby Worlingworth.
RAF Horham (USAAF Station 119)
RAF Horham is located to the south-east of Eye and straddles the parishes of Denham, Horham, Redlingfield and Hoxne. Built for the Royal Air Force (RAF) it was one of the earliest heavy bomber bases opened in East Anglia. In 1942, the base was handed over to the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) and designated Station 119. The aerodrome's history and a number of original buildings are preserved at two local museums - the 95th Bomb Group Hospital Museum > LinkExternal link and the nearby 95th Bomb Group Museum > LinkExternal link.
