Florence Green served as a waitress at RAF bases in Norfolk
A woman thought to be the last living World War I veteran in the UK is celebrating her 109th birthday.
A senior RAF officer visited retired waitress Florence Green at her home in King's Lynn, Norfolk, to present her with a cake and handwritten card.
Mrs Green joined the Women's RAF (WRAF) in September 1918 - two months before the Great War ended and six months after the RAF and WRAF were formed.
She served as a mess steward at Norfolk RAF bases in Marham and Narborough.
It had been thought that veterans Harry Patch and Henry Allingham - who both died in July 2009 - had been the last Britons living in the UK to serve in the World War I.
However, Mrs Green's story came to light earlier this year after a researcher unearthed details of her service record.
Wing Commander Adrian Burns from RAF Marham and mess steward Hannah Shaw, 17, visited Mrs Green to mark her special day.
She was born in London but moved to King's Lynn as a child.
Wing Commander Burns presented a birthday card signed by Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton, Chief of the Air Staff.
Mrs Green, who also received a birthday card from the Queen, had not been fit enough to travel to Marham for a celebration.
"It's a special day," said Wing Commander Burns.
"We only learned of Florence's record recently and we're just getting to know her.
"We thought it fitting that Hannah - who does the job Florence did 92 years ago - should be here to mark the day."
