Children in Hadleigh have been learning about soldiers from the town who fought in the First World War.
Ahead of Remembrance Sunday Mark Brennan from the Hadleigh and District Royal British Legion took pupils around Hadleigh Cemetery.
While there they stopped at each of the war graves and heard about the soldiers’ lives before placing a cross on each plot.
Mayor Richard Whiting was also present at the tour and said it was vital the children from all four Hadleigh schools to learn about the conflict.
“It’s important as we grow older these things are never forgotten,” he said.
