Dawn Leaver, home manager at Ambleside, said: “Celebrating John’s 99th birthday here at Ambleside was such an honour and everyone had a wonderful time. We always take the time to celebrate special days like birthdays and anniversaries and we like to make all residents feel at home by keeping to any traditions they may have.”

John was born in 1916 and joined the RAF in WW2. He served in Singapore and Burma, working on the aircrafts. He was a member of Squadron 67 and is proud to be a Burma Star Veteran. John met his beloved wife Joan in 1940 and they recently celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary at Ambleside with their two children, Jane and John.
