A town is set to pay its respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
Hundreds of people are expcted to line the streets Sunday, November 10, for the annual Remembrance Sunday proceedings in Dereham.
The usual parade is due to start from the Cherry Tree car park at around 10.30am and proceed to the war memorial, where a service led by the Bishop of Lynn, Jonathan Meyrick, will begin at 11am.
A poignant two-minute silence will see the community remember the fallen, before wreath-laying takes place and the procession continues to St Nicholas Parish Church for the remainder of the service.
All are welcome at the church service, which will begin at around 11.30am.
