Descendants of Norfolk soldiers who served in Gallipoli remembered those who lost their lives at a special event to commemorate the centenary of the campaign.

Members of the Gallipoli and Dardanelles International group were invited by West Norfolk Mayor Barry Ayres to a special reception at Lynn Town Hall on Friday.

Group president John Crowe said the bravery of those who served during the failed Allied invasion of Gallipoli, Turkey, should never be forgotten.
