If Wyn Davison gets as many birthday cards on July 22 as her age her postman might have to take some time off.

Wyn, who served with the Women's Royal Air Force during the Second World War, will celebrate her 102nd birthday soon and thanks to her nephew Ron Clarke she might get a few more cards than usual.

Ron spoke to Forces Radio BFBS' Hal Stewart about how a request on Facebook asking for people to send birthday cards to her has inspired people around the world to get involved.

The Royal Air Force celebrate their centenary this year which means Wyn was two years old when it was formed in 1918. Ron said:

"That's right, she's older than the Royal Air Force."

All her life Wyn has helped others and now her nephew Ron, himself a former Policeman, wants her to know how much she is appreciated and how much people from the Air Force community can come together for moments like this.

Rob Clark made the appeal on Facebook on July 10

Ron is hoping people will be generous with their time for Wyn's special day and told Hal about the special relationship he has with his Aunt.

"She's got all her faculties and she knows what's going on. She's in her own home and I go along two or three times a day and she's got carers coming in as well."

The original Facebook post calling for cards for Wyn, which you can see below, has been shared more than 700 times with hundreds of comments wishing the 102-year-old a Happy Birthday.

While Ron admits that Wyn is frail and struggles to walk these days, she does still have all her faculties and very good memories, particularly of her time with the Women's Royal Air Force.

Ron is asking that anyone, even after the date itself, from anywhere in the world please send his beloved Aunt a birthday card.

"She's so special because she's so caring and kind with everyone that she meets."

A card or well-wishing message can be sent to:

Wyn Davison, C/O Ron Clark, 98 Rowan Avenue, Washington, NE38 9AG
