Asian Journal - - World -

Lon­don: Nazar Singh, a Sikh man who is now Bri­tain’s old­est man, has beaten an in­fec­tion and made a full re­cov­ery to cel­e­brate his 111th birth­day - with a pint and a whisky chaser. Great-grand­fa­ther Nazar Singh was born on June 8, 1904, and has lived through two World Wars, the Ti­tanic, the first moon land­ing and the in­ven­tion of colour tele­vi­sion. He grew up in In­dian Pun­jab and moved to Eng­land in 1965 to work as a foundry moul­der. He lived in Wal­sall for al­most 25 years be­fore re­tir­ing in Sun­der­land in 1989.
