This 100-Year-Old Man Believes Drinking Hard Cider Has Gotten Him to Old Age

Playing 100-Year-Old WWII Veteran Still Goes to the Bar Every Day

A 100-year-old World War II veteran has attributed his long life to just one daily activity — drinking hard cider.

Englishman Joshua Kelly celebrated the milestone birthday at the same place he goes every other day, hitting the local pub.

"Cider, and I've been lucky,” Kelly says of his secret to a long life.

He joined the military when he was 18 years old and spent years serving in Belgium, Egypt and Cyprus. 

After that, he moved to Exeter and started a family, eventually becoming a bricklayer.

Through the years, one thing remained consistent: His love of cider. 

He also has an appreciation for beer, and even swigs a little rum now and then.
