Current and former members of 1st Oulton Guides turned out for a special event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the unit.
Dozens of people shared memories and refreshments during the get together at St Mark's Church Hall in Oulton Broad on Saturday.
The first enrolment to 1st Oulton Guides took place on January 31, 1917.
The unit has run continuously ever since, being one of the few units to remain active during the Second World War.
It is believed to be one of the longest running units in the region.
