Residents in Downham came together on Sunday to mark the 78th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Dignitaries and members of the public joined in the town for the annual service and parade commemorating the anniversary of the Second World War campaign.

Len Algar, chairman of the Royal Air Forces Association’s Downham branch which organised the event, said the day was “well supported” by RAF Marham and the 1018 Squadron Training Corps.

The service, held at the town’s war memorial, was conducted by Wing Commander The Rev Paul Mellor, with music provided by Hilgay Silver Band.

Mr Algar said: “Our thanks to the police for their support with traffic arrangements, and to the 80-plus members of the public who attended.”
