Uniformed military attaches from the Czech, Slovak and Polish embassies in London will take part at a Breckland Remembrance event.

Since 2004 the Royal Air Forces Association Thetford and Wretham and Hockham Royal British Legion have held the service.

It commemorates the 12 Czech and Slovak and two Polish servicemen who served at RAF Honington and East Wretham Airfield during the Second World War.

It will be led by the Rev Helen Jary and wreathes and poppy crosses will be placed on the Commonwealth graves.

The event often draws a large crowd and those wishing to attend should gather at the church at 10.30am for a 10.45am start.

All are welcome to attend.

On Remembrance Sunday, Wretham and Hockham Royal British Legion will hold their service at St Ethelbert’s Church in Larling at 10.45am.
