Visitors stepped back in time at the weekend to experience wartime sights and sounds at a military-themed event held at a west Suffolk airfield.
Echoes of the Past, held at Rougham Control Tower Museum, near Bury St Edmunds, featured military vehicles, living history displays, side stalls as well as dancing displays from the era.
Visitors were also able to learn about the history of the airfield and enjoy food from the barbecue.
This year’s event, held on Sunday, August 6, celebrated 25 years of the control tower museum and around 500 people enjoyed the day’s entertainment.
The museum, which is run by volunteers, is the home of 94th Bombardment Group (Heavy).
Graham Sage, Rougham Tower Association committee member, said: “It went very well and better than we expected.
“We had military vehicles, side stalls, and raffles and this year celebrated 25 years of the museum.
