Two 97-year-old blind veterans find love again


Two blind veterans have found love again in their 90s and celebrated with a blessing where they vowed to live out their days together. Peter Van Zeller and Nancy Bowstead, both 97, celebrated their new-found romance with a ceremony at the Blind Veterans UK’s chapel in Ovingdean, near Brighton, on Wednesday. The pair, who both served in the Second World War, met in May last year at the sight loss charity’s training and rehabilitation centre where they both now live. Mr Van Zeller proposed just over six months later in November and the pair decided to make a formal commitment to each other surrounded by family and friends.
