image for Last World War One Trench Fighter Passes Away
Thanks Harry. We'll Always Owe You One.

It is with great regret that we report the passing of Harry Patch, aged 111, the last known man alive to have suffered the rigours of battle in the trenches of World War 1

Harry Patch, of Coombe Down near Bath, England, fought in the battle of Paschandaele at the tender age of eighteen years.

Harry's passing will never attract the media interest stoked by Michael Jackson popping his clogs, but to the best of anybody's knowledge, Harry was no bollock grabbing moon walking paedophile freak.

Harry fought for freedom. He put his life on the line. He didn't just talk a good game. He got in there where it mattered.

Harry, on behalf of Spoofers everywhere, we salute you.

If not for guys like you, we wouldn't enjoy the freedom we have today.

Harry Patch. RIP

A better man than I.
