Sailing to New Zealand aged 102

Amazing story of 102 year old Eric King-Turner who is about to emigrate to a new life in his wife Doris's home country, New Zealand. They are travelling there by ship - maybe to remind him of the old days in WW2 when he served on HMS Invincible.

There's no holding back this old sailor - they got married 12 years ago, when he must have been about 90!

Good luck to them in their new life.

I don't blame him for being tempted by New Zealand. From all accounts it's a stunningly beautiful country and parts of Christchurch apparently look a lot like rural England.
