RAF Framlingham/Parham


British Resistance Organisation

fascinating subject.  Colin Durrant ran this Museum at Parham. He now runs the Aviation Museum in Bell Lane/ Foxhall Road and is a regular member at MHAS.

The guys who were in this secret organisation were not allowed to tell anyone including wives, girlfriends etc where they were going and a lot pretended to be conscientious objectors. imagine going out on a regular basis and trying to explain to your wife where you were going especially all night. The were some interesting bunkers around Ipswich but they have never been found. One apparently is in the railway tunnel at Ipswich Station and one in the Ferodo bridge on Norwich Road.
