105-Year-Old WWII Veteran Receives More Than 4,000 Birthday Cards

A man by the name of Ernest Horsfall has lived to the incredible age of 105 years old. He celebrated his birthday in style and, thanks to the power of the Internet, he received more than 4,000 birthday cards, according to the Royal British Legion.

Born in 1918 in West Yorkshire, Horsfall has seen a lot in life. This includes serving during WWII in the British military.
According to the BBC, Horsfall served in the British Army’s Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers during the war. He was a sergeant.

When he left the service, he went on to spend 5 decades as a private pilot. He also was married and had one son and a sister.

Despite having family in his early years, he had no surviving relatives as of his 105th birthday. That is why the Royal British Legion reached out to Twitter. They wanted people to know why and how they could do something for Ernest.

According to Yahoo! News, the membership engagement manager for the Royal British Legion, Rachel Venables said: “The Second World War generation is inevitably diminishing, but occasions like this are an opportunity for the RBL to remind everyone that their service and sacrifice means something and will never be forgotten.”
