Visit the collection of wartime memorabilia displays in Lavenham Little Hall, including a display entitled ‘A Little of the Home Front at Little Hall’.

Justyn Keeble and Mark Taylor will be providing a Photographic Reconnaissance Interpretation display, illustrating the importance of reconnaissance in advance of 8th US Army Air Force missions. This will include many historic artefacts such as aircraft cameras, stereoscopes and other items of interest.  Justyn and Mark will be in period USAAF uniforms. 

James Merriott will be in attendance, selling his book 'Watercolour Inspirations - Suffolk Summer 2015' and displaying one of his watercolour paintings.  James was evacuated to Suffolk from London during the Second World War.  His paintings are inspired by his wartime childhood in Suffolk and USAAF John Appleby’s book ‘A Suffolk Summer’ written in 1945 whilst he was in Lavenham about his wartime experiences in Suffolk.  John Appleby was an engineer with the 487th Bombardment Group, based at RAF Lavenham and his book was published in 1948. 

Little Hall’s display will include information about the evacuees who came to Lavenham.  Lavenham Little Hall was an Evacuation Centre for children being moved out of Bethnal Green in London during the Second World War
