Crowds young and old are lining Dereham Market place ahead of the welcome home parade for the Light Dragoons.
Norfolk Police estimate up to 5,000 people will watch the event, due to start at 11am, with 800 school children among them.
Air cadet Jordan Dunton, 13, is selling souvenir programmes produced by the Dereham Times in aid of the Colonel’s Appeal.
The Neatherd High School student said: “They have been fighting in the war and their wives are probably missing them most.”
Ashton Tokley, 14, also an air cadet, added: “Thank you for helping us, and welcome home. I would just like to say thank you.
“I has been a very big turnout. I came a few years ago and I think people are much more aware now.”
