Sixty-six years on and Jock (Charles) and Lillian Dalton are still just as in love as the day they tied the knot.
The couple celebrated their recent anniversary by renewing their vows.
Jock and Lillian met in 1951 at a dance in Mortdale when Jock was completing his National Service at the Bardia Barracks. Jock was 18-years-old and Lillian was just 15-years-old.
They were engaged on 15 August, 1953 and in true romantic fashion, eloped on November 14, 1953.
Their son Michael was born in 1957 and daughter Kerrie arrived in 1960.
They are loving grandparents to Ryan, Elise and Caitlin and great grandparents to Jacob, Noah, Isaac, Oliver, Isabella and Chelsea.
Jock and Lillian recently celebrated their 66th anniversary by renewing their vows at the home of their daughter in Vincentia and were thrilled to receive congratulations from the Governor General, the Prime Minister and other dignitaries.
