458th Bombardment Group at Horsham St Faith


In the airport terminal building (opened in 1988) there is a memorial display relating to the 458th Bomb Group.

This features photographs, paintings and a plaque commemorating the group's service at the airfield.

There is also a small display commemorating the brief stay of the 56th Fighter Group in the early summer of 1943.

A memorial dedicated to all personnel (British and American) who were based at Horsham St Faith is situated on the grass verge adjacent to the terminal building. It's pictured below.

Another memorial relating to the 458th Bomb Group is a plaque set into the wall of a block of flats in Heigham Street, Norwich.

This is in memory of the crew of a 753rd Bomb Squadron aircraft, who were all killed in a crash at nearby Barker Street in November 1944.
