End of an era
RIP Harry Patch, the last UK survivor of the trenches in the Great War. His funeral was held today at Wells Cathedral.
I can admire him, not for what he did in 1917/18 but for his later years. Specifically his repudiation of war, and his refusal to accept a state funeral. Thank you for not giving our generation’s warmongers an undeserved chance to bang their drum.
