The Sudbury branch of the Royal British Legion are taking part in a county-wide event to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice.
Every Man Remembered is being organised by the Suffolk Royal British Legion on Thursday, November 8, when schools will visit their local cemetery and learn about the World War One fallen who are buried there.
The pupils will learn about the men and women who lost their lives during the conflict and where they lived and worked.
At 11am, a minute’s silence will be held and students will be invited to lay wreaths and crosses.
The Sudbury and District branch will take part with schools from Sudbury, Great Cornard, Little Cornard and Great Waldingfield.
This week, a dazzling poppy display was installed at St Peter’s in Sudbury as part of the First World War centenary commemorations.
More than 23,000 handcrafted poppies can be seen falling from the tower of the church in a striking visual effect.
