Armistice Day

Just read about the 3 oldest veterans who attended today's memorial.

Henry Allingham, 112, Harry Patch, 110, and Bill Stone, 108, represented the RAF, Army and Royal Navy respectively at a ceremony at London's Cenotaph.

Incredible that 90 years later we can still commemorate their service.

Meanwhile this article focuses on the last people to die just before 11am on 11/11 1918.
