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
where they were offloaded onto waiting lorries ready for dispersal.
There was no offical
records retained by the UK War Dept or the USAAF, apart from
the Station Number.
