Boxted was the last stop on our little tour last weekend with daylight almost gone. There is a small museum to go back to some day and a couple of buildings remain as pat of an industrial unit but this visit centred around the memorial which is at the end of one of the original runways.

The airfield was initially used by Marauders but then was home to the 354th and then 56th Fighter Groups which were the two most successful USAAF Groups in air to air combat in WWII.
