Meet Eric and Herbert Walton, possibly the oldest male twins living in the United Kingdom.
Only a few weeks away from their 100 years old, the pair have lived to see the outbreak of World War Two, the Great Depression, and the world's first cartoon-talking picture, featuring Mickey Mouse.
They were there when Sir Winston Churchill announced that the war was officially over, and have also lived to see the devastating 9/11 attacks and the invention of iPads and flat screen TVs.
And their secret to a long life? It's all to do with their family genes, and it seems to be the norm for this family to celebrate such a staggering age.
Their mother Mary Walton, reached the age of 98 and their grandmother lived until she was 99.
But the family did admit that it is a bit unusual for both the brothers to reach the 100 year milestone.
The two have spent just about every birthday together since their birth on November 18th 1914 and remain very close, despite Eric living in Gosforth and Herbert
in Longhirst, Morpeth.
''He keeps me alive'' Herbert said, joking: ''he's the only one who can sing!''
Eric and Herbert were born in Gateshead in of 1914 and grew up in the area with heir mother Mary, after their father George had been killed
in World War One in 1917.
Reflecting on a century of treasured memories, Herbert said: ''we have enjoyed all our life and we've had some marvellous experiences.''
