Death of a Lancer

New Zealand's last survivor of Word War One has died. English born Victor 'Bob' Rudd served with the 9th Lancers in France.
The Returned Service Association asked Mrs Webb what it could do to mark his death, but Mr Rudd "was never a great RSA man".
"The only thing I said I would like them to do is to play The Last Post. Just for an old soldier."
Go well old fellow.
Aw, bless the old donkey-walloper.

You're right. It has been a thinning week for them. Sad that all this sounds like Hannibal crossing the Alps to kids.
