Mr Anderson was also the holder of Franceâs highest honour, the Legion dâHonneur.
Alfred Anderson was 18 at the time. Speaking to The Observer, Anderson has revealed remarkable new details of the day etched on history, including pictures of Christmas gifts sent to the troops.
'I remember the silence, the eerie sound of silence,' he said. 'Only the guards were on duty. We all went outside the farm buildings and just stood listening. And, of course, thinking of people back home. All I'd heard for two months in the trenches was the hissing, cracking and whining of bullets in flight, machinegun fire and distant German voices.
Very sad. There's not many left now - it makes it even more important that we remember them in the years to come, a whole generation's worth of British youth, who sacrificed so much in shocking conditions.
Mr Anderson seemed a complete star when interviewed for the TV programmes in the run up to the recent Armistice Day celebrations.
