|Trafalgar Square, London VE-Day May 8, 1945|
Meanwhile, a young lady named Daphne Atkins was partying in a mile-long conga, which later turned up Shaftesbury Avenue and through the pub where my mate and I were having a well needed drink.
On their way through the pub, Miss Atkins stumbled and fell into my lap. She was embarrassed and tried to get up but I held on to her and said, 'There's no hurry.' I asked her to join us in a victory drink.
That was 69 years ago and we're still together. We have celebrated our 65th wedding anniversary, and we now have two lovely daughters, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
I love VE Day"
