For those of you who don't know this is the wonderful Harry Patch.
He was the last survivor of World War 1 and died at the grand old age of 111 years and 38 days.
I never met Harry Patch, but I would have loved to, as he was a very interesting man, with a generous heart full of compassion.
He once said;
|Any one of them could have been me. Millions of men came to fight in this war and I find it incredible that I am the only one left.|
