Nazar Singh, Britain’s oldest man, turns 111
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.
