The lives of 11 people who died when four bombs were dropped over Cromer during the Second World War have been commemorated.
People living in the town and surrounding villages came together on Sunday as a flag was raised at half-mast to mark the 75th anniversary of the Nazi bombing on July 22, 1942, which significantly damaged the town centre.
On Sunday morning, Mary Wilson from the East of England Co-op Funeral Services raised the flag outside Cromer Church to recognise the 11 people who died and the 13 who were injured in the bombing, which happened as the Nazi aircraft returned to its base.
On Thursday, July 27, the Co-op funeral services branch in the town will display pictures, film and memorabilia of the bombing from 1pm to 4pm.
Local historian Peter Stibbons and deputy mayor David Pritchard will be on hand to share their knowledge.
