Hundreds of villagers who gathered at the war memorial in Ludham for the Remembrance Day service enjoyed a biplane flypast.
As with many other Norfolk villages on Sunday, November 11, there was a large gathering at the Ludham war memorial at St Catherine's Church to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
Trumpets marked The Last Post and Reveille and, as the great bell in the church struck 11am, there was a flypast by a biplane flown by Don Sargent of Ludham.
Lt Col Ken Grapes said: 'The flypast added an unusual and extra dimension to this important occasion.
'It was during the minute silence, it worked perfectly I couldn't believe it.

'It was a very nice and well attended service and the weather was wonderful.'
