A crowd of over 1,000 people gathered by the sea in Lowestoft to pay their respects to fallen servicemen and women.
The service of remembrance took place at the war memorial on Royal Plain with veterans, their families and members of the public in attendance.
The mayor of Lowestoft, Stephen Ardley, thanked the crowds for coming to remember and honour the fallen and said to wear your poppy with pride.
Mr Ardley said: 'We also are also here to respect those serving and those who have served. In your thoughts today I would like us to also remember a victim of terrorism, Stuart Cullen.'
Mr Cullen, who was 52 and from Lowestoft, was killed in the terrorist attack near Sousse in Tunisia in June this year.

A bugler sounded the Last Post and those gathered fell silent to remember those lost in conflicts.
