Air Cadets of 42F King's Lynn Squadron took up position inside the Minster church as an Honour Guard for the annual High Sheriff of Norfolk's church service for Her Majesties Justices.
A packed congregation stood as the colourful civic party made its way from the nearby Town Hall into the church, passing through the Honour Guard as it did so.
The office of High Sheriff, currently held by Major General Sir William Cubitt, KCVO, CBE, is at least 1,000 years old and is the oldest secular office under the crown. The High Sheriff remains the sovereign's representative in the county for all matters relating to the judiciary and the maintenance of law and order.
Speaking on Sunday, March 5, 42F's Commanding Officer, Flight Lieutenant Pauline Petch, said 'We are always able to turn out a number of our cadets for these important civic functions and they genuinely do enjoy taking part'.
