When she was born, the world was gripped in battle as the First World War had been on-going for nearly four years.
But now, Ann Ward has celebrated her 100th birthday and the Diss Branch of the Royal British Legion were there to throw a celebratory party in her honour.
Born on November 13, 1917, Mrs Ward saw service in the Second World War in the Women's Royal Naval Service.
Later she became a long-standing member of the Women's Section of the Royal British Legion, before becoming its president.
Mayor Trevor Wenman, and Mayoress Fiona Wenman, attended the event with Mrs Ward presented with a certificate from the Royal British Legion by chairman Ralph Boone, acknowledging her service to the district.
