The Lord Mayor of Norwich, Councillor Marion Maxwell officially opened the Eighth in the East’s new touring exhibition, at the Maids Head Hotel, on Friday 23 September. The exhibition is at the hotel until Thursday 6 October.

The Eighth in the East is a three-year Heritage Lottery Fund project exploring the legacy of the 8th USAAF The exhibition shares the social and landscape history of a time when our region was known as ‘Little America’.

The Lord Mayor said: “Since World War II, the City has had a long and happy relationship with American servicemen and their families, welcoming them back to Norwich and Norfolk. We are very fortunate to have the Second Air Division Memorial Library at The Forum in Norwich, along with its digital archive, ensuring that the story of the friendly invasion is never forgotten.”

“This touring exhibition, based on the oral history accounts of those who saw the GIs and airmen arrive, and witnessed their impact on local society, is a very important contribution to keeping the legacy of the Americans in World War II alive. “
