How King's Lynn's past is remembering its future.

Today (12th Oct) school children helped honour West Norfolk soldiers who gave their lives in World War One.

It was part of an event where two six-foot tall Tommy statues were also unveiled in Tower Gardens.

We must remember

That was linked to a special project between West Norfolk Borough Council and the Royal British Legion.

600 children in our county have painted little figures of real soldiers from our county who gave their lives for our country.

Cllr Nick Daubney, Mayor of King's Lynn & West Norfolk, said:

"Our Tommies remind us in a very real sense of those young members of our own community who lost their lives in the First World War.

"No longer with us, but a huge loss to their families, friends and work mates. We must remember and honour them".
