Harry Patch 111 Today!

by Kathryn Hadley

Harry Patch, the oldest surviving Tommy, celebrated his 111th birthday today.
Patch received a letter from the Queen and the Belgian Ambassador, Jean-Michel Veranneman de Watervliet, also congratulated Patch, sending him a box of chocolates, books and a letter.
Patch is not Britain's oldest war veteran, however. Henry Allingham, who was an air mechanic during the First World War, turned 113 on June 6th. Allingham is also Europe's oldest man.
An article reporting on Harry Patch's birthday celebrations was notably published on the BBC webiste.
