when this was on the tv and in the news the other day i did wonder if it would get any jw cogs working, doubt it though.
First remembrance service observed without first world war generation
in annual commemoration of the moment that the guns of the first world war stopped firing 91 years ago. But today's silence was the first unobserved by anyone who fought in that great war. To mark the passing of the last three survivors in Britain – Bill Stone, Harry Patch and Henry Allingham, who last year laid wreaths at the Cenotaph but have each since died – the great and good, led by the Queen, attended a commemoration at Westminster Abbey. Only one British survivor is thought to be still alive: former seaman Claude Choules, living in Australia, aged 108.
