What for, living? If Mr Patch deserved a K then he should have had one years ago. Mr Patch survived when thousands of his mates didn't, why does this merit any form of award nearly 100 years after the event.
Are they for it though? Weren't the remaining veterans (when there were more than now) against a state funeral for the last Great War veteran? The consensus was that it wouldn't be fair on those who had served and survived and more importantly on those who died in the conflict. Do Harry Patch and Henry Allingham feel the same way about this? I don't know, but i could understand if they did. They are certainly against a state funeral for the last veteran, though.
Information moves so quickly these days that you could quite easily find thousands upon thousands of people deserving of honours. Deciding exactly who gets one must be a task which gets harder every year.
