Thread: Eye

    Default Re: Eye - Officers club in Brome opposite hospital site.

    Hello.
    I am trying to do some research on the house opposite the hospital site for Eye Airfield. The house is called the Old Curacy and was used as the US Officers Club.
    Does anyone have any info on the house / club during the war.
    Any details would be much appreciated.
    Regards,
    James

    Hi James, I live local to Eye airfield and I had nothing on my site plans to say the house was used as an officers club, I will investigate further though and report back.

    Many, many thanks - any info would be much appreciated.
    I know Bob Hope is believed to have stayed there when he toured entertaining the crews. I grew up in the house and quite a few Veterans knocked on the door over the years to have a walk down memory lane.
    Best wishes,

    Better get some photos of the airfield before it has these built on them.

    I hope that the planning application doesant get the go head as it would spoil a beutiful view of the surrounding country side .
    Not to mention the views of the runways .

    I don't hold up much hope Bomber because the objections raised by the MoD and Norwich Airport at the time of the first application have been withdrawn. But I have registered an objection on Mid Suffolk website for what it's worth.
