A sea of more than 1,000 poppies have gone on display at RAF Oulton to commemorate the centenary of the RAF and the end of the First World War.

Made by a team of volunteers, who are friends of the museum, the poppies have been designed as part of a display to showcase the history of the base, the RAF and as a tribute to those who fought and fell during the First World War.

Sue Clements, who has helped organise the exhibit, said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to hold the display at the museum, as it is housed in the part of the Blickling Estate where the Officers Quarters of RAF Oulton were stationed during the Second World War.”

The sea, along with information boards, a replica of the RAF Oulton memorial and a tribute to an unknown soldier is on display in the RAF Oulton Museum on the Blickling Estate in north Norfolk.
