The last surviving soldier of the Great War, Harry Patch, lived close to me in Wells.

He died in 2009 aged 111. I never had the honour of meeting him, I wish I had.

But we should all give thanks to him and to the millions who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

I hate it when people don't know the difference between "your" and "you're". There so stupid.

We went to the memorial parade in Sandhurst as usual this year and I made a little video.

Very sad day but so respectfully observed and attended.

A Great TV Prog/Documentary on last night...."They shall not grow old"
A Peter Jackson (Lord of the rings) Film,bout WW1...A must watch one,astonishingly updated
Colour footage from the old Black+ White stuff,great Audio to.

Great to have in the Archives for future generations,really brings it all to life,not for under teens
tho if your gonna watch it,bit graphic at times.

The Last Tommy is a great watch as well ...A serious of 3 Progs takes you thru the First War,
with old interviews with the guys and girls that were there...
