The last of a kind

Harry Patch is the last surviving World War I veteran in Britain, reports
the Telegraph in Britain. A few years ago he was taken to meet a German veteran who had fought opposite him in Flanders. "Nice old chap. A pacifist. Same as me. Why did they suffer, those millions of men?" (Emphasis mine)

I think we'd better make him an honorary member of Australian Veterans For Peace.

Good on you, Harry.
