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.

If you want to send Harry a Christmas card please send it to c/o the Forgotten Association at 4th floor, 2 Grosvenor Gardens, London SW1W 0DH.
