The daughter of a former prisoner of war is launching a revival of a north Norfolk branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL).
Lorna Fish, 70, has been a member of the Northrepps RBL branch for 20 years, after her father helped found the branch in 1949.
And after taking on the role of chairman at an extraordinary meeting on Monday, June 4.
She said: 'We want to bring the branch up to date and see if we can interest younger members, as the same time as continuing with the core RBL values of care, compassion and respect.'
'There's no better time than this year - the 100th anniversary of the Great War - to launch a revival.
