Yes - sad - isn't he the one that was treated to a birthday party by the RN on HMS President recently, and last year was hosted by the RAF at Cranwell ?.
isn't that all three veterans that were at the cenotaph last November ?

Yes, you're right that's the man.
There are still two veterans alive, Harry Patch who is 111 years old and Claude Choules who is 108.
