A campaign is underway for a Harrogate RAF veteran to receive 100 cards on his 100th birthday.

Stanley Clarke joined the RAF as a 16-year-old electrical fitter appliance in 1940.

He volunteered for Commando training in 1942 then spent the war in North Africa and Europe. He retired in 1979.

A Facebook page about the RAF with 23,000 followers is now trying to make his milestone birthday special.

It says Stan is “alive and well living in care home in Harrogate”, adding:

“Stan is 100 years old on April 6th and we’re hoping to fill his care home with cards.

“Please take a couple of minutes of your day and write a card, or go to Moonpig and help make this great man’s day.

“Let’s get Stan over 100 cards.”

It urges people to send cards to: Gp Capt Stan Clarke, Harcourt Gardens Care Home, Harcourt Road, Harrogate HG1 5NL.
