Last Three

Culture 11:

And then there were three. Henry Allingham, 112, Harry Patch, 110 and William Stone, a mere stripling at 108, are the only ones left. They are the last three men living in Britain who served in the First World War. This morning they will assemble, for perhaps the final time, in London’s Trafalgar Square where, at 11am, 90 years to the minute since the guns fell silent, the final veterans of the Great War will lead the nation in a two minute silence that honors all the country’s war dead in all its many wars.
