AnglicareSA Home Care Services customer, Viv Samuel is celebrating his 100th birthday in January 2019.

Viv served with the British Army during World War II as a member of the tank regiment across Europe and North West Africa. 

In 1951, following the war, Viv and his late wife Lorna moved from England after Viv was offered a job in South Australia. 

Viv and Lorna made ‘many beautiful friends’ in South Australia and were married 68 years before she sadly passed away in 2013.

Viv and his late wife Lorna began receiving home care services around eight years ago. Since Lorna’s passing, Viv has continued using our support services.

We would like to thank our living legend Viv for his service, as this Remembrance Day we also recognise the soldiers who lost their lives at war.

This amazing man will be celebrating his 100th birthday on January 26, 2019.
