Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pierre Jean "Buster" Martin claimed to be the United Kingdom's oldest employee, stating that he was born in 1906. Until his death, Martin worked for Pimlico Plumbers, a well-known plumbing company in southeast London as a van cleaner, and notably refused to take a day off on the day he celebrated what he claimed was his 100th birthday. He also received coverage in the media for fending off an attack from a group of youths in 2007; his heroics were cited by the former Liberal Democrat leader Sir Menzies Campbell as "living proof of why people should not be written off once they pass retirement age." Martin stated that he would not retire from working. Doubts have been raised about all of Martin's historical claims, including his age, which may have been "only" 97 at the time of his deathshow more
