During the spring of 1943, American B-24 and B-17 bombers with their USAAF aircrew became an increasingly familiar sight in the towns and villages of East Anglia. This collection of more than 230 photographs focuses on the servicemen who undertook the vital task of maintaining the planes and supporting the crews over the next two years. Drawn from several private archives, the snapshots show GIs hard at work as well as relaxing on base and venturing into local communities.
