Volunteer efforts honor Thorpe Abbotts museum
Three plaques, located near the entrance of the air traffic control tower at the 100th Bomb Group Memorial in Thorpe Abbotts, England, honor the squadrons and units which served from that airfield between 1943 to 1945. During World War II, the 100th BG suffered a tremendous loss during the initial bombing missions, which earned them the nickname, the “Bloody Hundredth.” The tower has been reconstructed from the original structure and houses donated artifacts pertaining to the memorial.
