Local people saluted the heroes of war with a number of Remembrance tributes in the Lowestoft area.
Among the efforts was that of Christine Botwright and Michael Massey, who created an eye-catching display of poppies and a soldier in their front garden on The Avenue in Lowestoft.
Mr Massey is a veteran who served with the Royal Anglian Regiment, whilst Ms Botwright’s son Jordan Botwright is a member of the armed forces serving with the 29 Commando Regiment.
Passers-by were able to read the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’, which was displayed alongside the tribute.
There was also a beautiful display of handmade poppies in the window of Sally Ann’s charity shop on London Road South in Kirkley.
The display was organised by ‘Poppies By The Sea’, who also laid a handmade wreath during the Remembrance Sunday service on Royal Plain.
Next year the group are hoping to surround the Sparrow’s Nest memorial with 3000 poppies, dedicated to those whose war graves are at sea.
