BBC: Harry Patch, WW1 Veteran, has sadly passed away

Just seen a report on Sky news about Harry Patch,he refused a State funeral and only had words about his fallen comrades,he bore no grudge against the germans in fact he had met a few ex German soldiers who served in WW1,he did however say that he just couldnt understand how two civilised nations such as Britain and Germany could go to war against each other,RIP Harry Patch and thankyou, :salute:

Harry, a sincere thank you from one grateful Englishman. You can stand down and sleep in peace now mate - the lads out in Afghanistan have got the watch.
