A programme by the BBC interviewing some of the last British survivors of the First World War.

BBC Great War Site.

After this programme was shown, a thread in the Current Affairs Forum was started

The Last Tommy Thread

leading to the suggestion that a memorial service or state funeral should be arranged when the last man standing passes on.

This idea is supported in parliament by former Guards Officer, Iain Duncan-Smith MP, leading a cross-party group.

A website now exists to further the campaign

If you have any good ideas about what should be added to the site, please PM FluffyBunny through the ARRSE website or send an email to
