Blind Veterans UK Members Marry in Huddersfield
26 November 2012 12:50
Two of our members; Margaret Dufty 92 years old and John Hind 85 years old, who met through Blind Veterans UK married on 23rd November 2012.
Margaret had been a Sergeant in the Auxiliary Territorial Service from 1941 until 1946 and John was a Sergeant in the Royal Army Service Corps until 1948. Both developed severe sight problems due to macular degeneration which meant they became eligible for our support. They have both battled cancer, and Margaret nursed John back to health after he fell down the stairs and broke his back.
