ERO Presents: ‘Welcome To Essex’, remembering the USAAF

In the spring of 1944, the United States Army Air Force reached peak strength in Essex during the run-up to the hotly anticipated invasion of Europe — D-Day.

Join us 80 years on for this mini-conference to remember the impact the Americans had on the county, both in how they shaped the physical landscape as well as making memories with the locals.

This mini conference will see a series of short talks given on various aspects of, predominantly the Ninth Air Force and is being held on a particularly significant anniversary for one of the speakers.
