Debach was one of the last Air Force heavy bomber stations to be occupied by the American 8th Army Air Force.
Debach is situated 3 miles north-west of Woodbridge with some of the sites located in the adjoining village of Burgh. The pronunciation of Debach was always a problem for uninitiated Americans, who invariably referred to “Dee-bark” – locals have always pronounced it as “Deb-idge”.
This site, hopefully, illustrates to you the history of the 493rd Bomb Group, the restoration of the airfield and memories of the brave men who served here.
