I liked the idea that a couple of weeks ago that Henry Allingham became a teenager for the second time.

Happy birthday to both gentlemen!
Lets hope there's a few more happy returns! :)
Happy Birthday Mr Patch! Many happy returns, good health and heartfelt thanks for what you did for us, it may have ended 61 years before I was born but you and all your mates were the reason why we have what we do today, its a debt we can never truly repay...
I want to see him naked

Many Happy Returns Harry... Hopefully Many More To Come...

There is an excellent MySpace Page that has been set up on behalf of Harry Patch, it is well worth a visit:

Thanks Mr. Gundulph. Very interesting, and so very sad. It's got very dusty here.
Congratulations, Sir! Here's hoping for a good few more.
