A Royal British Legion branch in Norfolk is in disarray after four of its leading lights resigned.
It has led to fears that the Armistice Day service will not be held in the town because there's no one left to organise it.
John Needham, who resigned as chairman of the Cromer legion branch, said: 'There was one person we were not able to get on with at the branch, 'It's all tied in with the GP90 (Great Pilgrimage) parade. We felt this person had gone about getting onto the trip in an underhand way.
'Myself, the vice-chairman, the secretary and the treasurer all resigned, and most of the membership.
'I don't know what's going to happen on Armistice Day, which I've been involved in running for 10 years. We have two D-Day veterans at the branch.
