A special event to remember those who lost their lives in the First World War will take place on the second day of the Royal Norfolk Show.
The showground will host Norfolk Remembers, a re-enactment group which recreates the final few months of fighting in 1918.
Visitors to the show will see the RAF Falcons parachute onto the Grand Ring, followed by a replica Mk IV Tank named Deborah II.
Infantry support will also be provided to recreate a full experience, courtesy of the Royal Norfolk Regiment Living History Group.
General Lord Danant, patron of the Norfolk Tank Museum, said: 'The final months of the First World War brought the hope of peace, but the human cost of the war was truly appalling.

'This demonstration will provide a fitting opportunity for us all to pause, reflect and give thanks for the lives of those who fought and died for our county and our country.'
The re-enactment will take place at the show between 6.20pm and 7pm.
