The Great War

An event was held today in London to mark the beginning of World War 1 90 years ago. Four veterans attended and laid wreaths to remember their fallen comrades. The youngest was 103 years old and the eldest 108. He managed to struggle free of his wheelchair to lay his wreath. There are only 23 British veterans still alive.

Take a moment to rember the sacrifice that the allied troops made nearly a century ago.
