    Default The 'Last Tommy' has died

    Hi Guy's,

    As some of you probably know, Harry Patch, the U.K's last survivor of WW1 passed away this morning at 9a.m BST.

    Harry fought at Passchendaele in 1917, and was later wounded badly enough as not to serve again. He was also briefly Britains oldest citizen, aged 111, after the death of Henry Allingham last week. A modest man, the last of a noble and brave generation has gone.

    God bless you Harry, and thankyou.

    Regards, Ned.
