Tibenham in Norfolk can trace its history back to WWI when it was an RFC landing ground. However it was most active with the USAAF in WWII as home to the 445th Bombardment Group who were involved in the disastrous Kassel raid of September 1944 when only 4 of 35 Tibenham based Liberators returned to base. The field is still active and has been home to Norfolk gliding club for many years. I had a bit of a look yesterday and also went to All Saints church where there is a memorial within.

Isn't Mark. There were three or four that crash landed elsewhere including two at Manston but only four made base.

Wow. Unbelievable. Only 4 of 35 returned? That's staggering.

Yes, he 'starred' there for a while.
