    SOUTHERN EVENING ECHO: Not content with reaching a century, John Williams is now working on his second. Still remarkably healthy, he celebrated his 102 birthday in Southampton today. He was born in Warwickshire when Queen Victoria was still in her prime, but has spent most of his life in Southampton. Before the First World War he ran the Duke of Wellington in Bugle Street and the Royal Oak in Lodge Road and he still enjoys the occasional tot of rum. A steamship engineer, he also spent several months abroad in Singapore and working on canal boats in France. Married in 1903, he and his wife Florence had nine children. He now has 28 grandchildren and dozens of great grandchildren. But until the grand old age of 93 he lived independently and only moved to his new home at Pear Tree House in 1980.
