491st Bombardment Group at Metfield


There's a memorial honouring the 491st Bomb Group and other units which flew from Metfield.

It stands at the south-west corner of the airfield site, next to the B1123.

A commemorative plaque and Roll of Honor (pictured below), located inside Metfield Church, honour airmen from the 491st who were killed in service.

A memorial bench in honour of the 491st Bomb Group is located in North Pickenham, next to the village sign in The Street.

The inscription reads: "Remembering 'The Few' Who Triumphed Against Fearsome Odds 491st Bombardment Group (H) 29th July 1990".
