A HUDDERSFIELD couple are celebrating 60 years of marriage.
Jack and Mollie Firth, of Netherton, were married at Mount Pleasant Chapel in Lockwood on August 7, 1948.
They had met during the Second World War when Mr Firth, 86, was an engineer and Mrs Firth was a bespoke tailoress.
Mrs Firth, 83, said: “I met Jack when he was out with his two friends in Huddersfield.
“It’s been a happy marriage.
“I think the secret is looking after one another and trying to understand each other.”
Mr Firth spent more than 30 years working for David Brown Tractors at Meltham and his wife was a nursing auxiliary in the operating theatres at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
They have one daughter, Beverley, and two grand-daughters, Sophie and Lucy.
Mr Firth represented Huddersfield at billiards and snooker and is also a keen golfer.
They will mark their diamond wedding with a family celebration later this month.
