Jack served with the Royal Artillery Regiment during the Second World War, after which he worked for a printer in London publishing leading national media titles including The Sun and The News of the World. He retired in 1983 and moved to Maidstone two years ago when his health deteriorated.
 
Jack said:

I was thrilled to receive my telegram from her Majesty the Queen, as well as letters from the Secretary of State and my beloved Arsenal Football Club.
 
I was also very touched that Bluebird Care remembered my birthday and took the time to visit me.

As I am blind it is very important for me to have a great relationship with my carers, who help me with my personal care needs and medication.

Mel, Care Manager, said:

We were delighted to share in Jack's birthday celebrations, he has been a valued customer for the past two years and it was a privilege to surprise him with a cake and share this amazing milestone birthday with him.
