100 years from the Somme, Norfolk is asked to remember by taking photos of war memorials
Communities across Norfolk are being asked to photograph their local First World War memorials for an online digital record.
Operation Norfolk Remembers aims to create a database of every memorial in Norfolk dedicated to those who died between 1914 and 1918.
It is being organised by Cambridgeshire University Officers' Training Corps and will culminate in a digital collage displayed at the Forum in Norwich next month.
More than 800 memorials have been discovered so far, ranging from stained glass windows to cenotaphs.
Lt Sophie Tasker, project officer, said: 'There is no comprehensive list of First World War memorials in the county and as part of the centenary of the Battle of the Somme, we have decided to organise this project.

'As far as we know this is the first time it has ever been done in any county in the UK.'
