Henry is 95 not out



DAILY Examiner pinup boy Henry Thompson celebrated a milestone over the weekend when he turned 95.

Mr Thompson, who has subscribed to The Examiner for nearly 72 years and featured in a series of ads for the paper last year, commemorated the day with family and friends in Grafton's Uniting Hall. The sprightly nonagenarian said he had no intention of slowing down.

He still holds a drivers licence and makes wood furniture for many clients.
