The British Link to WWI Passes Away At Age 111

"Extremely modest, dignified gentleman, with a slightly wicked sense of humour and considerate to everybody he met. Very polite and I would sum him up as a true gentleman," that's how Lesley Ross described her friend, Harry Patch.

Patch, the last surviving veteran of World War I in Britain has passed away, and with him goes the final living British link to "the war to end all wars."
