North Norfolk has paid its respects to our war dead at Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day events.

Thousands of district residents attended marches, services and other ceremonies both on Sunday and Monday, the 101st anniversary of when the guns fell silent at the end of the First World War.

Past and present servicemen and woman, cadets, Royal British Legion members and others marched through towns including Cromer, Sheringham and Holt on Sunday before services were held at their town war memorials.

Bands played and prayers were said as attendees of all ages remembered those who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live in peace.

And a service at North Walsham War Memorial Hospital on Monday remembered the 99 men from the town and 88 from surrounding villages who died in the First World War and inspired the foundation of the hospital.
