D-Day Veteran Set To Marry His Former Love 70 Years After They Were Torn Apart By War

April 15, 2016

A 90 year-old D-Day veteran is set to marry his former fiancée 70 years after they split up due to the PTSD of his wartime experiences.

Roy Vickerman called Nora Jackson's home to apologize for their split and told the taxi driver to wait outside for a few minutes while he presented her with a bunch of flowers.

Nora threw her arms around Roy as soon as she saw him and now, a year later, the couple have celebrated their engagement at Roy's 90th birthday party.

The couple first met in 1940 at school in Bucknall, Stoke on Trent and soon became engaged, but the outbreak of war interrupted their plans.

The couple was reunited after Roy spoke about Nora on a local radio show and the host helped find her address.

Not knowing if Nora had a husband and not wishing to upset her, he simply planned to give her some flowers, apologise for the way their affair had ended, and then leave.

"Nora came to the door and put her arms around me and gave me a kiss. Four hours later, I had to tell the taxi driver I was staying."

"I knew him straight away, but I never thought I would see him again," Nora said. "It was a shock to see him, because it had been such a long time, but it was lovely. It was just like old times."

After reuniting, the original engagement ring is back on Nora's finger.
