West Norfolk marked the start of Armed Forces Week with a parade and flag-raising ceremony in King's Lynn on Monday morning.
Borough Mayor Geoffrey Wareham welcomed around 100 schoolchildren along with members of the public and veterans to a ceremony at the Tower Gardens.
A full civic parade formed-up at the Royal British Legion building in Tower Street before marching to the Tower Gardens where the flag will fly until July 1.
Harpley school pupil Carla West, 11, read the Salute to the Armed Forces while the Rev Canon Christopher Ivory led prayers and dedicated a pennant which was attached to the Standard by the mayor and marked the 90th anniversary of the Lynn branch of the Royal British Legion.
Representatives from the RAF, Royal Navy and Army were also at the ceremony, along with local cadets from each branch of the armed services.
