One half of the longest married couple in Britain has died after 81 years
of wedded bliss.
Frank Milford, 101, held the hand of his wife Anita, also 101, as he passed away at the residential home where they lived.
The devoted pair met at a YMCA dance in Plymouth in 1926.
They married on May 26, 1928 at Torpoint Register Office in Cornwall - the year the first £1 note came into circulation and Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin.
After the ceremony, they saw a Charlie Chaplin film at the cinema.
They survived two German bombs in the Blitz in Plymouth during the Second World War - one of them fell on their house.
