A village in south Norfolk will honour 37 men who lost their lives in the First World War with life-sized soldier figures.
Bergh Apton, nine miles from Norwich, will commemorate the loss of its men with a unique project.
John Ling, one of the volunteers behind the idea, said: 'These sculptures are in a position called resting on arms reverse, which represents remembrance and respect.
'It's important to not think about war on Remembrance Day, it is about those men, women and children that died.'
The production of the figures was carried out by Norwich-based graphics company, Hussey Knights.
Figures will be placed in position by a team of village volunteers during the course of the afternoon on Thursday, October 25. Some will be placed outside the houses they lived in over more than years ago.
The soldiers will stay in place on 11 roads in village until the end of November.
