Saw a bit about him on the news this morning going round schools telling them about the war and it's effect on those that took part.

He once attributed his grand age to 'cigarettes, whisky and wild, wild women'. :smile:

Re: Goodby Henry

A truly worthy and polite man, who has attracted the respect of many.
He put his long life down to cigarettes, whisky and wild wild women.
Well I don't smoke but two out of three isn't bad !

Goodbye Henry
Those eyes a real light in them, yet what must he have witnessed. Incredible that he survived so much and then had the strength of mind to keep his senses of focus to inform people and of humour.

Quite remarkable.

It's disgraceful that this man was not knighted in recognition of everything he and his fallen comrades did for Britain and many other nations.

When you look at some of the tossers that have received awards for doing f*ck all compared to this man, it's sickening.

RIP Henry
