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.

All are welcome to attend.
