Lonely war veteran is delighted after receiving hundreds of Christmas cards
As I read each page, my handkerchief got wetter and wetter
– War veteran, Harry Winters
We had the pleasure of speaking to war veteran Harry Winters, who received over 200 Christmas cards from well-wishers across the globe as a bid to lift his spirits.
This brilliant gesture arose when Mr Winters admitted to his friend and former Royal Marine that he felt lonely and isolated. So that friend, Jules Walker, posted a call out on social media asking people to lend their support to the great war hero.
The amazing 96-year-old received cards from as far away as Hawaii and Australia as an act of gratitude for his service during the war.
