89-year-old war veteran’s ad looking for work will melt your heart



LONDON — An 89-year-old war veteran has been inundated with job offers after his ad looking for work to save him from “dying of boredom” went viral. 

Joe Bartley from Paignton, Devon, retired 6 years ago, but discovered that unemployed life wasn’t for him. 

Suffering from boredom and loneliness, he put an advert in his local newspaper, the Herald Express, hoping to find something to occupy his time and allow him to meet new people.
