And then there were three...

I didn't know that right after I posted about Henry Allingham, the third-last British World War I vet passing away, his friend, Henry Patch died, too. That leaves Claude Choules as the last remaining soldier for the UK to have seen combat in the 'War to End All Wars'. There are still two more remaining--Jack Babock of Canada and Frank Buckles of the USA. It really is something that they've made it so long.
