490th Bomb Group’s history to be shared with Eye community after £40,000 grant award


The history of the American Air Force’s 490th Bomb Group airmen who served at Eye Airfield during the Second World War will be shared with the wider community after a grant award of nearly £40,000.

It is hoped the community project, led by students from Hartismere School and assisted by volunteers, will be completed by May 2016. It has been made possible following a grant award from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) of £39,100.
