A fruit farm is staging its 66th apple day on Sunday.
Maj David Jamieson planted the first trees at Drove Orchards at Thornham, near Hunstanton, in the early 1950s.
He returned to his family home pledging to work with nature, after taking part in the Normandy landings and earning a Victoria Cross.
The farm, beside the A149, will be welcoming visitors on Sunday, October 14 (10am - 4pm).
'Every Autumn we like to celebrate this beautiful fruit,' said site manager Kerry Dark.
