RAF Rougham/Bury St Edmunds


RAF Rougham was taken over by the USAAF almost as soon as it was completed, anyone with memories or photos, there is a memorial garden in the Abbey Gardens at nearby Bury St Edmunds with various  erected memorials

Sometimes this airfield was called both names, the USAAF operated out of here during WWII and there are some nice memorial gardens in the grounds of Bury Cathedral remembering those that never returned to base†

A Stearman landing but I cannot help but wonder how much longer the airfield at Rougham will continue to exist regarding urban sprawl?
