Their grandaughter Gillian, said: "It was a small wedding and they headed back to Ann's mums for breakfast and then off to the pictures in the afternoon before a party will all the family that night."

John, 82, was a gunner in the Royal artillery before he served his time as a joiner in Lithgows,while Ann worked in the Gourock Ropeworks and then stayed at home to look after their family.

The pair were blessed with four children Marilyn, Cass, John and the late Jean.

Over the years they have made many happy memories together, spending time with family and enjoying holidays to Spain, Blackpool, Butlins and America.

John's advice for a long and happy marriage is simple.

He joked: "Don't argue back!"

Ann's message for younger couples was straightforward.

She said: "Take it a day at a time."
