The Last Ship Sails

The BBC has reported the death of the last living combat veteran of World War I. Claude Choules witnessed both the surrender and subsequent scuttling of the German High Seas Fleet at the close of the First World War, then spent the Second World War in Australia responsible for demolitions and wreck clearance.

JJV is away on assignment so I have filled in for him on this momentous occasion. R.I.P.
