Schools and workplaces, towns and villages fell silent this week as West Norfolk paused to reflect on the sacrifices made by its servicemen in the two World Wars and more recent conflicts.
Following the Remembrance Sunday services at the weekend, hundreds observed a two-minutes’ silence on Wednesday morning to mark Armistice Day.
In Lynn, the tribute was led by borough mayor Colin Manning, who was joined by dozens of people in the Vancouver Quarter to mark the moment the guns fell silent to end the First World War exactly 97 years ago.
Elsewhere, many schools paid their own tributes, with legion officials and personnel from RAF Marham joining pupils and staff of the Springwood High School for their service.
And, in Swaffham, pupils of the Sacred Heart School gathered around the town’s war memorial to pay their own respects.
For many, however, this time of the year is most keenly felt in the impact of war on their own lives and those of their loved ones.
And Scotty’s Little Soldiers founder Nikki Scott, whose husband Lee was killed in Afghanistan in 2009, used the power of social media to get the message across.
She wrote on Twitter: “Remember Lee and all our fallen heroes.”
