As far as memorials go, unusually there isn't a typical 'flash' USAAF memorial.
In the adjacent village of Willingale, the war memorial in the churchyard has one face engraved as a memorial to the airfield servicemen, whilst there are framed items within the church itself.
Our group the HAMG, responsible for building two airfield memorials in the area, have looked at Willingale closely.
We did draw up plans and came up with an acceptable design, and actually got around to selecting the only possible site to place a suitable airfield memorial. To us, it is no good just dumping a memorial anywhere, we take great pains to select the right place in our collective mind. We were going to do this in conjuction of another interested group who hold two prop blades from a Willingale based Marauder. these were to have been used in the memorial, after months of negotiations the whole idea came to a halt with the other party failing to maintain contact.
The trouble with Willingale/Chipping Ongar is that there is nowhere, apart from the selected location, that you could place it safely. The land is private apart from the usual rights of way. No one apart from dog walkers would see it!
The old main entrance is out of the question, as there is nowhere to stop and admire it due to the narrowness of the public road. All in all Willingale is a quite remote site with only one public road almost half a mile to the east. The other road is to the North of the site but is unsuitable in the way of security for a memorial.
Maybe one day it will get its long deserved memorial to the 'Tigertails'
