Like most twins, Florence Davies and Glenys Thomas are devoted to each other. But their devotion is exceptional – they have stayed inseparable for 103 years! These lovely sisters lived through both world wars and are now considered to be the oldest living twins in the world.
Florence and Glenys have been living a very quiet life in Caerphilly, South Wales. They have never left their village since November 22, 1911 – the day they were born. They’ve taken care of each other, bought identical clothes, and lived through their happiest times together.
