Communities in towns and villages across Norfolk gathered around memorials to pay their annual tribute to war heroes.
A procession took place in King's Lynn, from the Saturday Market Place to Tower Gardens.
Residents then gathered around the war memorial for the Act of Remembrance, next to the iconic market.
The vicar leading the service said the wreaths were a "poignant and powerful sign" of a "desire to remember".
Among the hundreds who turned up in King's Lynn were Kaye Hill and her daughter Kelly.
Kaye said she was remembering her father and wearing his medals during the wreath-laying.
She added: "Today is quite a poignant day because, at dad's funeral, we had the Last Post played and we had the standard bearers, so it was a very sad day but also a very proud day for both of us.
"I wasn't sure whether to [wear the medals] or not, but my daughter said to bring them, and I'm very proud to be wearing them."
Current and former service personnel joined civic dignitaries and local people around the memorial, designed by Sir Edward Lutyens and unveiled in 1927.
A short service was led by the Reverend Canon Edward Carter, the vicar of the 600-year-old St Peter Mancroft Church alongside the market.
He said: "The wreaths that have just been laid both here and in many other places are a poignant and powerful sign of our desire to remember those who have lost their lives in the tragedy of war.
"In sorrow, but filled also with hope, we turn to God in prayer."
