"The last British survivor of the World War I trenches, Harry Patch, has died at the age of 111.
Mr Patch was conscripted into the Army aged 18 and fought in the Battle of Passchendaele at Ypres in 1917 in which more than 70,000 British soldiers died.
He was raised in Coombe Down, near Bath, and had been living at a care home in Wells, Somerset
This leaves Claude Choules, a seaman, as the only British WWI veteran alive.
How many are left from other nationalities?
