Poppies were worn with pride as dozens of people gathered to commemorate Armistice Day in Cromer.
As the last post played standards were lowered before a two minute silence marking the moment the guns fell quiet at the end of the First World War.
Rev Jennie Hodgkinson lead prayers in memory military personnel killed in conflict at the town's war memorial.
Standards were carried by representatives of Sheringham and District RAF Association, Cromer and District Royal British Legion and Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) Association.
Amongst those paying tribute was 99-year-old veteran George Goram who served with the REME during the Second World War.
