Moving remembrace at Old Buckenham Airfield

Time to remember
There was a big crowd at Old Buckenham Airfield today for the annual service of remembrance. The weather was bright and sunny, if rather chilly, and many classic and military vehicles were on display as well.
This year the Airfield is celebrating the 70th anniversary of its opening and special flags were flying to commemorate that fact.

The service included a very moving solo singing of the American national anthem before the sounding of the last post.

Then it was time for the laying of several wreaths by a range of people, from senior American staff from Lakenheath to representatives of the local primary school.
