World War II – The Americans in Sudbury 1944/45

Lee Clark revisited the town and his former base in October 1951 when he was still serving in the American Air Force. He sent this postcard home to Long Beach California…


“ Well here I am again. Not another uniform in sight and the townspeople looking at the 2 of us like we were men from Mars. Took Amos (?) out to see the Kings and Byhams but neither family home, so left a note. Took several pictures of the base and former Sqn. Area. Looks like a ghost town. Drove the length of the main runway in a taxi.

Will show you the pictures when I get back to the States.”
