A Walk Through HistoryA Free History Walk at Ridgewell Airfield 24th April 2016

A Walk Through History

My names Martin and I'm the Community Martin Cuthbert Archaeologist for a three year Heritage Lottery Funded project exploring the legacy of the US 8th Army Air Force during their time here in WW2. I am leading a Free heritage walk around Ridgewell airfield on Sunday 24th April, 2016 and would very much welcome help in advertising this to your members and anywhere else you think would be worthwhile.

I've attached a copy of the poster and a blurb on the walk, feel free to pass this on digitally to any of your contacts or print out if you wish, alternatively I would be happy to print off some posters and put these in the post. If you know of any other organisations or contacts who would be interested in the walk or would be able to promote the walk then please let me know.

Thank you in advance for your time.

SUNDAY 24TH APRIL 2016     10AM.
Join Community Archaeologist Martin Cuthbert as he leads a walk through the historic airfield at Ridgewell, home to the 381st Bomb Group of the 8th USAAF during World War Two.
