Chelsea Pensioner Marjorie

Marjorie Cole

"I was a chef instructor in the Army at Aldershot, and never imagined I would become a Chelsea Pensioner - it felt like I had won the lottery, it's absolutely wonderful.

When I heard they were admitting lady pensioners I went for it. I'm so proud to be an ambassador for the Royal Hospital and for women, and to meet people every day from all over the world.."
