Poignant tributes were paid on Remembrance Sunday, as young and old remembered those who have lost their lives in combat.
Hundreds upon hundreds of people attended parades and services across the region, paying respects to the fallen heroes of the First World War, and conflicts since.
In Beccles, military personnel, scouts, guides and members of other organisations paraded from the war memorial, through the streets of town to St Michael’s Church.
The parade was followed by a well attended service, which began at 2.45pm.
In Bungay, the Bungay Buckeroos from RAF Bungay led a parade through the streets, as members of the public stood to pay their tributes.
There was also a parade held in Loddon and Chedgrave, which saw people marching from the White Horse in Chedgrave to the Loddon war memorial, led by a piper.
At 11am, the region fell silent, as the community reflected on the sacrifices made during the horrific war, united with a single message: we will remember them.
