Britain's Oldest Veteran

Posted on the police forum is a story about Britain's oldest veteran Henry Allingham, who is 110 years old today.

"......It is said that a hero is someone who believes in something bigger than himself, and acts upon that. Mr Allingham is a patriotic British citizen who has bravely served his country and deserves all of the tributes he is receiving today. We must never forget the debt we owe to Henry and the millions of other British servicemen and women who have risked their lives in the defence of our country. They are our nation's pride, and - on our first Veterans' Day this month - I hope every community and every school will recognise with pride the heroes in their midst."

A very Happy Birthday to you Mr Allingham.
