Mary and Bernard Young are celebrating 65 years of marriage and happiness.
The pair were sent a card by the Queen to commemorate their blue sapphire wedding 68 years after they first met.
Mr Young said: “We met through mutual friends; I was stationed in Nottingham as a Royal Engineer at the time, while she was working at the council.” 
After a whirlwind 
romance, Bernard admits it wasn’t long before he knew Mary was the right girl for him.
He added: “It was clear at the time she was the one for me, it was an indescribable feeling, I knew straight away.”
But how does it feel to have been together so long? 
“We are very proud and quite lucky really to still be together after all these years. It is all down to a lot of hard work.”
