    Yes it has. I was hoping he would make to the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WW1.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them.


    (Yes, that can apply to non-ANZACS too)
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Reading about Frank Buckles, he seemed a gentle and patient man who was unused to the growing fascination the US public developed in him.

    This apparently now leaves only two surviving UK vets from all the different nations involved in the "War to end all Wars."

    I can only hope Claude Choules and Florence Green have as much honour and celebration in their last years.

    So he's not the last, but the last American. RIP

    Claude Stanley Choules, an English veteran, aged 109, is still alive.

    RIP to the deceased veteran.
