It's sad to hear that the last of those that fought in "The war to end all wars" have finally passed on. Their first hand knowledge will now only be read about in the history books.
Years ago, I had the honour of knowing and doing odd jobs for the longest living WWI pilot, Henry Botterell. While doing small jobs around his house I was able to pry some of the stories of his exploits over France in his Sopwith Camel.
Fascinating stuff.
Here,s some info on him...BALLOON BUSTER
