Maurice Metcalf turns 99
Authored by: Richard Rowe on Thursday, March 22 2007 @ 03:08 PM GMT
To get a "100-year" telegram from the Queen, Maurice would need to prove he is:
- a British citizen - e.g. copy of relevant British passport page
- 100 years old e.g. pension details, uk birth certificate See http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/Page4896.asp

Although Maurice is now a US citizen, he may have retained his UK nationality and UK passport. Although the US requires you to give up foreign nationality when you become a US citizen, the Brits do not recognize this. To give up British nationality, you have to swear it in front of a British official. See: http://www.britainusa.com/sections/articles_show_nt1.asp?d=1&i=41001&L1=10080&L2=41001&a=25317
