The village sign is located on the small green at the junction of The Street with Wickmere Road. The Spitfire fighter aircraft commemorates RAF Matlask, the WW2 airfield located south of the village.
RAF Matlask

RAF Matlask became operational in October 1940, serving as a satellite station to RAF Coltishall. The airfield had two grass runways of 1,450 metres (1,600 yards) and 1,190 metres (1,300 yards) length respectively. The station was a place of constant change and home to a large number of units flying a wide range of aircraft, and about 2,500 RAF personnel were stationed here. The aerodrome was closed in October 1945. See also: Link
