I am sorry Marling. How can you say that. He was Britains oldest War Veteran. What a brave man. I just hope that you never have to go war and experience what that brave man did to save our 'proud. country. x

What did he do that was brave?

Not only was he Britain's oldest war veteran, he was also the oldest man in the world. Janet Street Preacher, did you not read the previous post-he was a war veteran, therefore brave.

He was a war veteran, a conscripted soldier, I don't think it necessarily follows that he was a brave man.
He may well have been brave but I would like to know what his particular act of bravery was.

Kitty - what do you mean "how can I say that"? I didn't SAY anything. I asked a question, that's all. Put your weapons down Kitty I am unarmed.

JSP...anyone who is conscripted or volunteers to be placed in the line of fire is a bloody hero in my eyes. The act of defending his country was the brave act

He was not only a brave man and a hero in my eyes but he was also a very sweet dear man. If it were not for his generation our country would not be as it is now we owe those men and women more than just a lot.
Henry also has a book out called Kitchener's last volunteer for anyone that does not know who he is i suggest you buy the book it will explain all and is an excellent read.

Kitty cat - what is your problem? All marling asked was who he was. Its not uncommon for someone especially an outsider to not know who he was, is it? Don't be so defensive!!

Janet Street preacher - Henry Allingham was not a conscript he was a volunteer - he wanted to join up in 1914 but his mother, who was dying, asked him not to leave her. When she died in 1915 he joied up - and saw active service in the new Flying Corps - he WAS a brave man. He was also on the national and international news as the world's oldest man and the last surviving WW1 serviceman - not sure how anyone in this media mad digital age could have missed Mr Allingham's passing.
Hope there is a great turn out for his funeral

Thank you Old Cynic

I don't have a problem thanks. It made the front pages in most newspapers. Nothing more than perhaps marling missed the papers! x

Well said Keeley! I didn't know who he was either kitty catty and that's only because I don't follow the news very much as it's so bloody depressing nowadays. Marling was only asking and I would have done the same out of curiosity. Touchy pussy!!!

Well you obviously do have a problem KC, your answer was rude and patronizing! No need for it is there? All he did was ask who he was, it doesn't matter if it was on the front pages of the papers, maybe marling doesn't read them or simply didn't know who he was! Try not to be so aggressive, it does you no favours.

MEOW. I am not rude or patronising Keeley, but i would consider you both . This is the last I will say as I like to think I am a bit more mature than to get involved in this petty argument anymore x.

Sorry kitty but you WERE both rude and patronizing, telling someone that "you hope they never have to go to war" for no good reason etc etc is uncalled for, i agree with keely

Leave kitty cat alone. I think I can see what he/she means. Why is he /she being rude and patronising. Perhaps I missed something!

Anyway this is a thread about Henry Allingham. So stop bickering, Rest in Peace Mr. Allingham

Thank you HH, at least you can see how rude that comment was! KC I couldn't care less what you "consider" me to be, your comment was unnecessary, FACT, leave people alone in future.

This is a sad and infuriating subject, as so much misinformation is pushed, and the far-right lap it up as their truth. I was... more
