WWI survivor marks 109th birthday with RAF cake

Breaking News

A woman thought to be the last living World War I veteran in the UK is celebrating her 109th birthday.

A senior RAF officer visited retired waitress Florence Green at her home in King's Lynn, Norfolk, to present her with a cake and handwritten card.

Mrs Green joined the Women's RAF (WRAF) in September 1918 - two months before the Great War ended and six months after the RAF and WRAF were formed.

She served as a mess steward at Norfolk RAF bases in Marham and Narborough.
