A GREAT-grandad is celebrating his 100th birthday despite never having eaten a green veg.

Brian Robinson, who is allergic to chlorophyll in the greens, puts his age down to an orange a day — and his wife Barbara.

He said: “I’m not a wise person, but my advice is just find the right person to live with.”

After he was born in Manchester, Brian spent his childhood in and out of hospitals due to his allergy and a pioneering op for deafness.

He went on to Oxford University before becoming an army officer in India in the Second World War.


Brian recalled: “I was in Calcutta HQ when I got a call from Winston Churchill. He wanted a general sacked and I was given the duty of telling him he was fired. I don’t think he was too happy about it.”

Brian then ran a hotel and post office, where he met Barbara, now 84 — his second wife.

The couple, who have been wed for 28 years, are celebrating at home in Glastonbury, Somerset with his daughter and Barbara’s family.
