North Walsham’s War Memorial Hospital was the fitting venue for the first of the town’s five services marking the centenary of Armistice Day.
Hospital Friends were joined by the Royal British Legion, Army and Air Training Corps cadets, councillors including the mayor Barry Hester, hospital staff and supporters for a 9.30am service and wreath-laying led by the vicar the Rev Paul Cubitt.
Paul Watts from the Cromer and Sheringham Band was the bugler.
The original hospital was built in 1924 in memory of the 99 men who lost their lives in the Great War.
Also on display was a replica Red Cross fIag as a reminder of the two auxiliary hospitals which were set up temporarily in the town to nurse injured soldiers from the 1914-18 conflict. Two flags have been recreated, to go on display at the hospital and church, through a joint initiative this year by the Friends and the vicar.
