Blog: Andy MortonWestons competition lands Peter the story of his life

Andy Morton | 10 July 2014

Peter Hardee claims he drinks Henry Westons Vintage Cider because it's just like himself - “nice and mature”.

Now the 88-year-old is to have his life story bottled, in a way. Hardee has won the opportunity to narrate his autobiography and have it published, thanks to a competition win with Westons. 

It should be a packed read - the war veteran from the West Midlands in the UK served as an officer in the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment in Jerusalem during World War II, and enjoyed a successful career in the engineering industry. He has two daughters, four granddaughters and one great granddaughter.

Hardee said: “I’m really looking forward to telling lots of colourful stories about my past."

The only problem is, he adds, is that "now I have to remember them all!”
