Covid-19 Statement

During the outbreak of Covid-19 the Museum will remain closed until further notice. Social distan­cing on a small site is complex requiring invest­ment and a great deal of work by our volun­teers in order to open safely and comply with the require­ments of social distancing.

Whilst the Museum is closed we would really appre­ciate it if you could continue to support our museum and the volun­teers by following our activ­ities on social media. This is a great way that for members, supporters, and friends to help maintain our public profile and aware­ness of the Museum.


Welcome to the Red Feather Club, the 95th Bomb Group Museum, the home of the 95th in the UK!

The 95th Bomb Group Heritage Association looks after a number of faithfully restored buildings on one of the communal sites of the 95th, to help keep their memory, and the vital contribution they made to the war effort, alive. The official UK home of the 95th is a living museum and monument to the only Eighth Air Force Bomb Group to receive the Distinguished Unit Citation three times.


 

  • Our Past

    The 95th flew 334 missions between May 14th 1943 and May 25th 1945 and was the first American Bomb Group to perform a daylight raid on Berlin. It claimed 425 enemy aircraft destroyed, the highest number by any USAAF Bomb Group in WW2.

  • The Museum

    The Red Feather Club offers a unique exper­i­ence in a 1940s WW2 NCOs’ social club – visitors say it is like “going back in time”. There are 1940s dances, film shows, talks and the museum is open for educa­tional visits from schools and groups and regular open days.

Opening Times

Except for during the pandemic, we are open between 10am and 4pm on the last Sunday of every month between April and October. The opening dates for 2021, will hope­fully be added shortly! We’re often working hard main­taining the building on Saturdays too, so if you see the flag flying, pop in and see us…and maybe grab a paintbrush?

If you require a more specific visiting time, for a group or if you’re trav­el­ling a long distance, please get in touch on the contact form here and we’ll do our best to accom­modate you

We operate a dog-friendly envir­on­ment, provided your dog is well super­vised at all times. We do kindly ask that you don’t allow your dog inside the exhibits area as many of our items are irreplaceable.
