Middy in the War Years

One of the Middy’s most popular events is scheduled for the second bank holiday weekend 30th and 31st May in the new 2021 programme.

Middy in the War years celebrates the one time when the railway paid its way when, during WW2 the MSLR served the USAAF bases at Mendlesham and Horham  satisfying the constant demand for ammunition, men and supplies.

Subject, of course to the coronavirus regulations in place at the time, we hope this year’s event will be able to carry out most of the plans we had in place for the VE Day anniversary last year, including parades, displays of military equipment and vehicles, and music of the period both live and recorded, plus a flypast by The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

Dates, times and appearances to be confirmed as soon as possible.
