For Elsie’s entire life she had been blowing out the candles on December 14. It was only when she looked at her birth certificate this year that she noticed that her true date of birth was December 18, 1908.
It’s believed her mum Elizabeth White had too many kids to keep track of the actual birthday of her eighth child.
Elsie’s daughter Brenda, said: “It was a complete surprise to her. Everyone always told her she was born on the 14th. Apparently her mum was rather fond of a drink so she may have been a bit confused.”
