Dozens of men, women and children lined the streets of Dereham for a parade to celebrate and commemorate the Battle of Britain.
Members of the Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) marched through Dereham to commemorate the Second World War conflict, which happened 79 years ago.
Dereham Town Band, along with squadrons from the Norfolk and Suffolk Wing Air Cadets, came together to celebrate the efforts of the heroes who fought in the historic air campaign of summer 1940.
Tracey Allen, the Dereham cadets commanding officer, said: "All together it was a really great and commemorative atmosphere, it was probably the busiest one yet.
"The weather was kind and lots of cadets, veterans, town councillors and representatives from the RAF turned up."
