Yesterday the 389th Bomb Group hosted their Gala Day for the public. The day was filled with restored military vehicles, classic cars, period music blaring from the old radios, stalls with memorabilia reproductions and books about East Anglia and the War, hotdogs, burgers, and lots of reenactors wandering around.

While we were there we managed to get a few pictures that help to sum up the events of the day

It was a fantastic afternoon and I want to thank everyone involved for creating a lovely afternoon to share in East Anglia’s ties to America and the sacrifices made by these men.
