‘I have three homes’ travelling display

RAF Lakenheath is not only home to American military personnel, but also to their families. There are five schools that serve the base, with over 2,500 children attending them.

These schools have been working with Suffolk Archives to explore young people’s experiences of arriving and living in Suffolk. They have been inspired by items from the archive collections to express their opinions and share their stories with the people of Suffolk. You can see a selection of their work in our online exhibition ‘I have three homes’: Life as an American military child in Suffolk.

Their work can also be seen in a travelling display which is making its way around locations at RAF Lakenheath; if you would like to borrow the display do please get in touch with us on
