Happy 102nd Birthday to Major Edwin ‘Ted’ Hunt

Current resident at Care for Veterans, Major Edwin ‘Ted’ Hunt MVO, celebrated his 102nd birthday on Wednesday 23rd March 2022.

Ted is a World War Two Army veteran of the D-Day landings and the Battle of Narvik. After the war, he became a Royal Waterman and was appointed Queen’s Bargemaster in 1978. Ted retired from royal service as a Member of the Royal Victorian Order in 1990. Read more about Ted.

A special surprise concert by The Not Forgotten’s Swingtime Sweethearts was held in the Care for Veterans’ Wellbeing Hub.

Ted and his fellow residents thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Ted even joined in with singing ‘We’ll meet again’ by Dame Vera Lynn.

Here are a few clips from the day.

“The staff here cannot do enough for you. I am so well looked after, and it is a pleasure to meet fellow veterans.”
