April 2023 guest visit

On Thursday 27th April 2023 we were very pleased to host a visit to the museum by Linda Helding.

Linda is the daughter of Arnold Helding, who was a USA fighter pilot with the 436th Fighter Squadron based at Wattisham during the Second World War. Linda has donated her father’s US uniform and cap which are displayed in the Museum, along with his silk escape map.

Linda had travelled from the USA and afterwards she sent a message to say how much she enjoyed herself, that she was made to feel very special, and that she learnt so much about the airfield’s ‘roots’ and history.
