Aylsham Remembrance Day
- Credit: Archant
The loss of each of Aylsham's 66 soldiers killed in the First World War is being marked by a bell, tolled 100 times from noon on the centenary day of his death.
The entire Aylsham Roll of Honour was read out during the town's Remembrance Service.
It also included 21 Second World War dead and one man, Paul Tortice, killed in the Korean War.
Among the 1914-1918 fallen was Sgt Harrold Brawn, 23, of the first battalion Royal Norfolks. He was killed in action at Missy-Sur_aisne, near Mons, on September 14 1914 and the centenary of his death has been marked by the solemn tolling.
Sgt Brawn's brother John survived both world wars. Both were musicians.
