Watch war veteran John Leishman tell his story on BBC One tonight. John says Age NI helped him get his life back.

'I felt as though my life had gone... until I contacted Age NI.'

'I don’t think there is any shame in turning to an organisation like Age NI and I’m very thankful I found out they were there. They respect you, they look after you and they go well out of their way to help you and there’s no need to be embarrassed about that. They looked after me - and now I’m sure I’ll live until I’m 100!'

In tonight's episode, Stephen Nolan travels with World War II veteran John Leishman to Normandy and discovers the pride and pain of battle have not been forgotten.

Watch Story of a Lifetime on BBC One Northern Ireland tonight at 22:35 (27/02/2013 10:35pm).
