Lowestoft stood still a this morning as crowds gathered for Remembrance day to pay respects for those who have fought and died for the country.
Commemorations began shortly after 10am, with a range of events remembering those who have and those who continue to serve for the country.
The Last Post then marked the start of a two-minute silence at 11am.
In Lowestoft, the two minute silence was marked by a 105mm Light Fun from the F (Sphinx) Parachute Battery.
The artillery gun fired shots out into the coast after Lowestoft's Mayor Alice Taylor inspected wreaths on the memorial.
Also present was the Cheshire Yeomanry Living History Group, who were dressed in full First World War regalia.
The ceremonies were finished with poetry readings by students at East Point Academy, Ormiston Denes Academy and Pakefield high school
