    The older threads refer to Claude Choules who was the last veteran who saw active service , Florence was the last person to have served during WW1 although not abroad on active service !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    The last active service veteran was Claude Choules RN/RAN who died last year-to be honest Florence Green had a pretty marginal role right at the end of the war but obviously some one was going to be the last one standing-"It's a long way to Tipperary, it's a long way go...' RIP
