Only a few weeks ago, the last US WW1 veteran died, Frank Buckles, who worked as an ambulance driver.

Today, news have arrived that the last British veteran, Claude Choules, died at a nursing home in Perth, Australia, aged 110.

The only known enlisted survivor of WW1 still living is now Florence Green, also 110, who surved as a nurse.

Frank's last ride may well have been in an ambulance, too.

110 seems almost immortal.
