A contender for the title of Huntingdonshire’s eldest “birthday boy” celebrated turning 103 last week.
Harry Emery has received yet another message of congratulations from the Queen, bringing his total to four.
A party was held for Mr Emery, whose real name is Henry, at Hunters Down Care Home in Huntingdon where he has lived for about four years.
Team leader Heather Wallace said: “Harry likes to sing with the staff - any song that comes to mind. He’s very bubbly and very lovable.”
Members of his family joined staff for the party, which included entertainment from a singer and a visit from deputy Mayor of Huntingdon Councillor Tanya Forster.
