American aircrew who lost their lives on perilous bombing missions flown from a Norfolk airfield were remembered on Sunday.
A remembrance service was held at the 453rd Bombardment Group War Memorial Garden at Old Buckenham Airfield.
The service saw Col Scottie Zamzow, a senior commander from the US Air Force at RAF Lakenheath, lay a wreath in memory of the 366 servicemen who lost their lives serving from Old Buckenham in B-24 Liberator bombers.
A tribute was also paid to Pat Ramm, who died earlier this year.
Mr Ramm acted as liaison between the 453rd Bombardment Group Memorial Association in America and Britain.

His wife Agnes laid a wreath on behalf of the memorial association yesterday.
