Britain's Oldest Poppy Seller

Ron Jones

The man, believed to be Britain's oldest poppy seller, says it's important everyone wears the symbol to remember what other generations went through for them.

World War Two veteran Ron Jones from Newport, who was a Prisoner of War in Auschwitz for two years, has been collecting for the Royal British Legion since his retirement from the Armed Forces in 1980.

At the age of 99, he's still fit enough to sit with a collection tin in his local supermarket year after year and tells Capital's Danny Hayes there's nothing he'd rather be doing:
