Sad news. I've just heard Bill Stone, HMS Hood veteran, has passed away aged 108, which leaves just Henry Allingham of the WW1 RN veterans left. I had the honour of meeting Bill a couple of years ago at a function. He was as bright as a button and sang a ditty from his RN days which I simply couldn't print in our pages. A really, really nice guy with a sparkle in his eye. Rest in peace, Bill.
