Royal Pioneers Corps veterans from across the country have paid a visit to Sheringham for a reunion weekend.
The jolly earlier this month was the second such event organised by Peter Wegg, himself a Pioneer.
The programme included a barbecue, parade and laying of wreathes at Sheringham's war memorial and an evening of entertainment at the Tyneside Club.
Mr Wegg said: 'A brilliant weekend of old mates, stories and a fair amount of laughs and not forgetting lost comrades.
'Very smart turnout at the parade at Sheringham memorial and laying of wreaths, with many campaign medals proudly worn.
