The Last Fighting Tommy

Harry Patch died today at the age of 111. He was the last survivor of the trenches in WW1. He said, at last years Remembernce day parade........It is important to remember the dead from both sides of the conflict. Irrespective of the uniforms we wore, we were all victims." This is still true today. A day when the world is not at war somewhere still seems a long way off.
