D-Day veteran Roy Vickerman broke up with Nora Jackson in 1946 after he struggled to adjust to civilian life after being wounded by a Nazi sniper.

For seven decades Roy bitterly regretted losing his wartime sweetheart so set about trying to track her down to apologise. Incredibly, after enlisting the help of his local radio station he was reunited with her after discovering she lived just two miles apart. They discovered their partners had since died and were now single so they picked up where they they left off in the 1940s. On March 26 this year he proposed to Nora on his 90th birthday - with the same engagement ring he first gave her 72 years ago.
