Honour for 107-year-old veteran

A heart-warming story:

The BBC said:
A 107-year-old World War I veteran has been given an honorary degree at the university he helped build.

Harry Patch, of Wells, received an Honorary Masters from the University of Bristol, where he worked 80 years ago.
Full story here.
I was thinking the same Birdie - he looks better than my Grandad who a couple of years ago decided he'd had enough of mortal life at 81. These old boys are made of something good!
I saw him on the Last Tommy and he looked by far rhe frailest of the lot

However never trust looks as he out lived most of the them and still soldiering on, hopefullly for many more years

PS he has a much younger girlfriend, shes in her eighties :wink:
