Thousands attended the Remembrance Sunday wreath laying at King's Lynn's Tower Gardens.
Veterans and serving service personnel marched into the park from the Town Hall, led by a civic procession.
West Norfolk Mayor Carol Bower read the exhortation: 'They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them or the years condemn.'
After a bugler played the Last Post and the crowd observed two minutes' silence, dignitaries, representatives of the armed services, veterans' associations and other groups laid their wreaths.
After a hymn and prayers led by the Revd Canon Christopher Ivory, vicar at Lynn Minster, the parade marched to the minster for a Remembrance service.
