Henry Allingham, the world's oldest man, last original member of the Royal Air Force, last but one surviving world war one veteran, has died aged 113, at his care home in England.
Last November, Henry along with the two other surviving WW1 veterans, were honoured guests at the annual Rememberence Day last november.
Now only Harry Patch is left.
Like many of his generation, Henry shut out his war experiences, including his time on the Western front and his aerial view of the great naval battle of Jutland.
But very late in life, he felt he should pay homage to those who did not survive.
In the last few years, he became something of a national icon, having been born when Queen Victoria was on the throne, he travelled around recalling his life across three centuries, recieving many honours and had a book written about his life story.
When asked how he had lived to such an advanced age, he would reply, whisky, cigarettes and wild women!
His death is headline news today.
Last year's rememberence ceromony;
Visiting schools to recall his long life;
Other events of Henry's last years;
That he will rest in peace is certain.
