A HAPPILY married Bishopbriggs couple have shown their love has stood the test of time after celebrating a sensational 70 years together.

May (89) and Bill (91) Wilson marked their platinum wedding anniversary recently.

The couple met at a party in Knightswood and were married in Partick Baptist Church in 1942.

Bill was a flight mechanic in the Air Force and May would often take up jobs wherever he was stationed.

The couple have a son Alan and daughter Lesley, and three grandchildren.

Bill says the secret to their success is “give and take”.

The couple are pictured above as they are and on the right as they were!
