    Incredible 108! That's amazing! The memories he must have. When he passes on it'll be the end of link to a very moving/interesting/frightening part of history.

    /bows my hat to Mr Harry Patch. He has my admiration and respect.

    He was on a documentary along with a few other WWI heroes not that long ago. He certainly had some gruesome stories to tell.

    Many happy returns to him
