Britain’s last WW1 veteran dies

ITN

Harry Patch, the last survivor of World War I to fight in the trenches, has died.

 
He passed away this morning at a care home in Somerset, aged 111.

The home released a statement which read: “It is with much sadness that we must announce the death of Mr Harry Patch.

Funeral arrangements are being made in accordance with Mr Patch’s wishes, and we wish to extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and the residents and staff of Fletcher House.”

Mr Patch was a machine-gunner in the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry and fought during the Battle of Passchendaele, in Ypres, which claimed the lives of more than 70,000 soldiers.

He became Britain’s oldest man when another veteran of the war, Henry Allingham, died a week ago.

COMMENT

The men of Harry Patch’s generation did not stand idly by and pretend it wasn’t happening. These men, your great-grandparents or grandparents, who fought in conditions you wouldn’t dare walk into. Hand to hand combat, mud, wet, disease, hunger, gas, bombs and bullets raining down on you, and when you were ordered you would have to go up over the trench and run through a hail of lead to gain 50 yards while your friends dropped dead beside you. These men did it because they valued their families and the freedom they had

You are not being asked to do what these men had to, you are being asked to wake up and understand the reality around you. To do what you can by voting out the criminal elites, by writing and e-mailing, by protesting and supporting others, by helping your neighbour and standing side by side with those threatened by the system. All you are being asked to do is care. Just to care what you are leaving behind for the next generation. To take responsibility for now and stop the decline of our world into the hands of the criminal elites.

If the day comes too when you must raise a hand to help a victim then you must do that too, but first you must try every means possible to get the police, the army, the federal forces and anyone else on the side of the people for when the time comes and the people stand together the whole pyramid of power will come crashing down

You owe this to the millions of men and women who died fighting so that this oppression would never happen again. You will be shamed forever if you disrespect the names of those brave souls who gave you the chance to live freely and fail them
