Updated 4:29pm Wednesday 7th May 2014 in News
WAR veteran and High Wycombe legend Monty Seymour celebrates his 100th birthday this weekend.
The Second World War hero reaches the century milestone on Sunday, with dignitaries throwing a party for him at Adams Park.
Mr Seymour began his pharmaceutical career as an apprentice at Hughes' Chemist in 1931 before he eventually took full control in 1951.
He is a founding member of the High Wycombe Royal British Legion and president of both the RBL branch and Wycombe Wanderers.
Mr Seymour is also a member of the High Wycombe Guarantors, which is a group of working and retired businessmen who lay on a Christmas meal for the district’s oldest residents.
He was appointed an Honorary Burgees in 2002 - which is the highest honour the Mayor can hand out - for his outstanding service to the town.
