Else Kirkaldy, a former secretary to Winston Churchill, celebrated her 102nd birthday last week.
Mrs Kirkaldy, who formerly lived in Urchfont but has been a resident at Dauntsey House nursing home in West Lavington since 2005, was given a tea party by staff at the home.
Her first memories include the celebrations at the end of the First World War.

She also worked as a secretary at the BBC.
