Over the past
16 years, I have been researching the presence of the United
States Army Air Force,
stationed in Bures between
1943 and 1945
Thousands of Bombs
and other Munitions were stored in local woods and along country
lanes by the USAAF,
ready to be deployed to Airfields in Essex and South Suffolk
Munitions arrived by train to Chappel from Liverpool and Immingham
Docks, where they were offloaded onto waiting lorries.
The result is a totally unique report, which relied heavily
on local interviews with parishioners from
Bures, Pebmarsh, Wakes Colne, White Colne, Earls Colne and other
You will not find this information published elsewhere.
I could find no official documentation of why the USAAF was
in the vicinity, either in the UK or the USA
My research was eventually recognised by ex-servicemen in the
States, who very kindly supplied me with additional material.
