"It wasn't worth it. No war is worth it. No war is worth the loss of a couple of lives let alone thousands. T'isn't worth it...the First World War, if you boil it down, what was it? Nothing but a family row..."



Henry John "Harry" Patch (17 June 1898 – 25 July 2009) - known as 'the Last Fighting Tommy' - was a British supercentenarian, briefly the oldest man in Europe and the last surviving soldier to have fought in the trenches of the First World War.
