Have your say

Peggy and Peter Webb’s first date was memorable for all the right reasons.

After meeting at a youth club, they travelled into London on VE Day – May 8, 1945.

Crowds had gathered to celebrate the end of the Second World War and a young Peggy and Peter were there to see history in the making.

That first date turned into more and on July 1 1951, they were married in Colliers Wood, London.

Now living in Old Portsmouth, Peggy and Peter have one son, Martin and two grandchildren, Toby and Charlotte. They also have a great-grandaughter, Amy.

They marked their anniversary with a celebratory lunch and were delighted to receive a card from the Queen.
