Volunteer efforts honor Thorpe Abbotts museum
The names of the 100th Bomb Group service members who lost their lives at the air traffic control tower hang on the wall for guests to read at the 100th BG Memorial Aug. 25, 2016, in Thorpe Abbotts, England. The memorial site honors the squadrons and units which served from that airfield between 1943 to 1945. During World War II, the 100th BG suffered 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 relating to the memorial.
