Madingley American War Cemetery - The Memorial Building and Chapel

The memorial building is divided into a large museum area which is entered into through he main doors and a small chapel to the rear of the memorial building. The seals of the War & Navy departments as well as the principal decorations awarded to the armed services are depicted to the sides of and above the main doors.

The main feature of the museum room is the large three dimensional map thirty feet long and eighteen feet high displayed upon the interior of the south facing wall. The map depicts wartime Europe and illustrates principal shipping lanes between the United States and the UK as well as showing many of the principal bombing targets that were attacked by British and United States aircraft from bases in the United Kingdom and Italy.

The windows of the north side wall, facing the graves contain stained glass replicas of the Seals of the States of the Union arranged from left to right in the order that they entered the union.

The walls of the chapel and the ceiling of the memorial building are covered with a large mosaic depicting ghostly aircraft as they fly on one final mission towards the resurrection summoned by the archangel's trumpet. www.madingleyamericancemetery.info
