On a wet April in 1979, south Norfolk villagers gather for the unveiling of the new village sign in Pulham Market. At first struggling with the Union Jack veil, a clergyman performs the ceremonial duty to reveal the new sign that bears four emblems - one for each of the original Pulham Market public houses - The Falcon, The Crown, The Ducks Foot and The Queens Head and an illustration of Mary Magdalene, in recognition of the parish church being dedicated to St Mary.
