days and events take place throughout
We can arrange special tours of our museum and the airfield
site, and through our contacts with other nearby bases we can arrange
for you to visit them as well. We usually offer this service FREE of
charge. See TOURS below.
A windy but sunny open day on 15th October 2011.
that day Hardwick
Warbirds were also flying
from the adjacent airstrip at Airfield Farm and
there was a classic car parade in the afternoon.
Tea and homemade cakes aplenty.
An open letter from Colin
the 93rd BG (H) friends and family, which also applies to other
groups. Please read before you book your trip:
If any of you are
thinking of visiting the Museum and the base at Hardwick
please get in touch with
us first so we can help you plan your visit. This
also goes for the other groups.
DO NOT PAY FOR A TOUR GUIDE. We
have been showing veterans and their families around Hardwick
and the Norfolk countryside ever since they have been coming
home to their bases. The most we ever ask is for a little
help with the fuel cost. We can arrange for base
contacts from other bases to help out if you need to visit
more than one.
The Second Air Division Memorial Library in Norwich has a
list of base contacts. These are all volunteers
who are happy to show visiting Americans around their chosen
base, plus we know the history of our bases, not just what
is written in books, with most contacts growing up on or
around the bases or surrounding area.
Some of you may be planning a trip to England and then on
in to Europe. Well, a planned tour is probably
the best way for you to go, however, if you're just going
to drop by while on vacation, check with us or the Library* first.
It was one of the reasons the Second Air Division set up
their memorial for you.
We will do our best
