The 25 pictures that show how proud Norfolk and Suffolk are of our D:Day heroes
Children stood side by side with veterans as people of all ages gathered to pay their respects to the heroes of D-Day.
Services were held across Norfolk and Suffolk to mark the 70th anniversary of the landings on the beaches of Normandy.
In Norwich hundreds of people assembled at the war memorial in front of City Hall. Len Mann, chairman of the Norwich and District branch of the Normandy Veterans Association, read Laurence Binyon's The Fallen, which was followed by the Last Post and a two-minute silence.
