Things to see at the museum (find us at postcode IP21 5DG)

The Red Feather Club, operated and managed by the 95th Bomb Group Heritage Association, (95th BGHA) is the official UK museum of the 95th Bomb Group. The award-winning museum, in a former NCOs’ club, houses uniforms and memor­ab­ilia relating exclus­ively to the 95th Bomb Group and has been described by visitors as “stepping back in time”.

The museum is continu­ally being updated as new addi­tions are donated or acquired. It aims to tell the story of the 95th from their early days in the US to their return home after the end of the war through displays, films and the firsthand accounts of locals and servicemen.

Outside there is a memorial to all those who served with the 95th and a marble bench commem­or­ating Bob Cozens who is credited with saving the 95th twice – the first time when he rallied the battered squadron over Kiel during WW2 and the second time by invig­or­ating the veterans organ­isa­tion in the US.

The Red Feather Club complex itself consists of five inter­con­nected rooms and a separate guardroom.The former kitchen, which is now the entrance, houses a massive diorama of the airfield as it was during WW2 and the roll of honour listing all those lost. The mural room houses original artwork painted by US servicemen and preserved in place by the Association. The Bar Area is a faithful recre­ation of the bar as it was during WW2. The museum itself used to be the Beer Hall. The former Dry Lounge – which is now called the Blue Lounge, is used extens­ively for 40’s style dances and events of all types. The Red Feather Club is also the home to the 1285th Mil­itary Police Com­pany re-enact­ment group who have their own guard­room, complete with cell which you can visit.
