    As the few veterans of the "War To End All Wars" slip away, their significance is unfortunately appreciated only by those of us who have an interest in history. The international media is more interested in covering the sensational events of today created by the insignificant than the historical events and the passing of an age. Henry, thank you for being one of the last to represent your generation.

    Couldn't agree more.

    I offer the words that appear in my signature which are inscribed upon the grave stone of James Thomas Byford McCudden VC.
