Friendly Invasion Group Walking Tour
'Jitterbugging, G.I.brides and a U.S. jail'
Come on a tour of medieval Norwich and discover the places frequented by the American airmen and women in WW2. The US 8th Army Air Force arrived in East Anglia in July 1942. It's 2nd Division established 14 airbases in Norfolk and north-east Suffolk. Norwich became the centre of social activities for the young Americans outside of the bases. The 'Liberty Run' or truck would bring them into Norwich and drop them off at the Bell Hotel. From here they would go to the American Red Cross Clubs, such as at St.Andrews Hall or the Bishop's Palace (now The Norwich School). The tour will also include sites connected to sixteenth century migrants to America and prominent Norwich landmarks.
