Military vehicles and war memorabilia will be on display in Diss this weekend as Armed Forces Day returns after a two-year absence.

In honour of the nation's armed service personnel past and present, the community will take to the Market Place on Saturday, June 25 in support of the men and women who have served this country.

Diss and District Royal British Legion, the District Royal Air Force Association and The Army Cadet Force will be joining forces for the day to highlight what they do.

Diss Museum, which has war related items on display, will also be open and running a second-hand book sale.

Bob Rogers, branch secretary of the Diss and District RBL, is calling on people to show their support.

He said: "It is nice to start getting back to normality and it is important that we let our service personnel know that they are appreciated, as they are not only at war, they take part in humanitarian efforts around the world."

The event, which will take place from 9am to 3.30pm on Saturday, also includes a collection for this year's Poppy Appeal.
