Claude Choules, 1901-2011

Claude Stanley Choules, the last known combat veteran of the First World War, has died at the age of 110.

And so ends an era; World War One, at least as far as its battles are concerned, has now passed out of living memory.

R.I.P Claude, and all the other men who suffered through that ugly, pointless war. The ones who came back, and the ones who didn't.
