Welcome to Dunkeswell Memorial Museum

Dunkeswell Memorial Museum is an non-profit organisation. The Museum is dedicated to all the veterans of the USAAF ( who only stayed four mouths on the base) U.S. NAVY and RAF personnel who served on the only American Navy Air Base commisioned on UK Soil during WW2. The USN FAW7 was operational from mid-1943 to the end of European hostilities in 1945. Through the perseverance of a small group of people who became fascinated by what history happened over 60 years ago, the museum did give the opportunity for visitors to discover the importance and very special roles that the American servicemen of U.S Navy Base Dunkeswell played during WW11.
