Meet the 99-year-old transgender WW2 veteran


A 99-year-old painter who fought in the Battle of Dunkirk during World War Two is now one of the oldest transgender women in Britain.

Louise Jennings, who lives in a rest home in Sheffield, was 26 years old when she fought in the conflict as Robert Jennings.

The veteran underwent gender reassignment surgery to become a woman in her early 70s, following the death of her wife in 1989.
