Death of a great man

Henry Allingham one of the last remaining survivors of world war 1 has died this weekend. When asked how he wished to be remembered he said "I don't, I want to be forgotten. Remember the others". I for one think this is one wish we should not grant this great man as by remembering him we remember the others. He become the embodiment of all those that were locked in perpetual youth by the carnage that was world war one.

Finlay let your memories wash away and rest in peace!
