Men of the American 486th Bomb Group bow their heads in prayer outside the Town Hall. They had marched down into town on August 2 1945 to say farewell to their Sudbury hosts. A damaged image but well worth preserving as a record of their presence here during 1944-5 . See also images pa116 798 and 800.
