Last Post has sounded

Today, it was announced that the last surviving veteran of the First World War, Claude Choules, has died in Australia, aged 110. The last veterans from Great Britain, France and Germany have all passed away in the last few years. The Great War has now passed into history, in that no one is left alive who went through it, but its repercussions continue to date.
