The hundredth anniversary of the dedication of Great Yarmouth's war memorial has been marked with a special service

The First World War memorial in St George's Park was unveiled by Prince Henry and dedicated by the Bishop of Norwich on January 7, 1922
However, the centenary could not be marked in January this year, due to concerns over Covid rates. Instead, a service commemorating the anniversary was delayed until Sunday
