Postcards depicting more than 100 World War One aircraft have been given to RAF Marham's Aviation Heritage Centre.

The museum, based at RAF Marham, will display the post cards in the ornate frame they have been kept in.

Graham Adderson, 72, from Downham Market, was given the cards in an old tin when he was a child.

Mr Adderson said: “I didn’t know what they were back then, just said thanks then didn’t look at them for years. It wasn’t until I was a hairdresser on the base I thought they would be a good thing to have on the wall.”

When he opened a fish and chop shop in Downham Market, Mr Adderson transferred the postcards to his new establishment and they stayed for 25 years, until he sold it and decided to give the cards back to RAF Marham.

The museum’s opening hours are Tuesdays and Wednesdays 9am - 4pm and every last Saturday of the month 9am-4pm
