Roy Norris is a camera buff who lives in Peterborough. He has taken all of the following photos of the old Glatton airfield. Most of the photos were taken in the months of January and February of 2004. We thank Roy for giving us permission to post these photos so that you might get some idea of what a once familiar area looks like today. Enjoy.
The following 1945 layout map of the field and surrounding area will give you some idea of the location that these photos display.

This is a front view of the memorial to the 457th flyers in Conington church yard showing the message on the pedestal. The tribute reads "Lest we forget - in perpetual memory of those valiant American airmen of the 457th Bomb Group who, during World War II gaave their lives that Freedom might prevail".
Another view of the side of the memorial pedestal with a tribute to Bernie Bains. The tribute reads "In memory of Bernie Bains, Peterborough, 1918 - 2000, Historian and Friend of the 457th".
