Remembrance Day services

Remembrance Day services to honour the fallen and those who have risked their lives in conflict will have an added poignancy this Sunday.

Remembrance Day services to honour the fallen and those who have risked their lives in conflict will have an added poignancy this Sunday.

As well as paying tribute to sacrifices made many years ago, which must not be forgotten, the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month will be a time to pause and reflect on the bravery of the Royal Anglians, who recently returned from Afghanistan.

Services are taking place across the region, with Norfolk's main commemoration expected to attract hundreds of people to the area around Norwich City Hall at 11am on Sunday.

Lord Mayor Roy Blower will lead a service in the Garden of Remembrance, beginning at 10.40am, with the public invited to watch from St Peter's Street.

Afterwards, a procession of ex-servicemen, members of the Royal British Legion, voluntary organisations, RAF Marham, army, navy and air force cadets will march through the city led by the Salvation Army Citadel Band to a service at Norwich Cathedral.
