Three First World War Vets I found this remarkable photo on a British news website. It was taken today (November 11, 2008) at the British Armistice Day service in London. It shows three of the four surviving British First World War veterans. From left to right: 112-year-old Henry Allingham, 110-year-old Harry Patch, and 108-year-old Bill Stone. Allingham was an aviator, Patch was in the army, Stone was in the navy. (The fourth surviving veteran, 107-year-old Claude Choules, lives in Australia.)

Last WWI Veteran Dies Claude Stanley Choules, the last accepted combat veteran from the Frst World War, died in Australia on May 5, 2011 at the age of 110 years and 63 days. Choules was also the last military witness to the scuttling of the German fleet in Scapa Flow. He was also the last veteran to have served in both world wars, and the last seaman from the First World War. At the time of his death, he was also the third oldest verified military veteran in the world and the oldest known living man in Australia. He was the seventh-oldest living man in the world.

Frank Buckles - The Last Doughboy Frank Buckles was the last surviving American verteran of the First World War. This photo show him with President George W. Bush in 2007. He had volunteered at age 16 and drove ambulances and motorcycles in France. He died just after his 110th birthday in 2011. Because Buckles was not a combat soldier, he did not qualify for burial at Arlington National Cemetery. It took a special act of Congress for Buckles to be interred there. Buckles died a few months before Claude Choules, a British sailor living in Australia. Choules was the last accepted WWI combatant from any country.
