And Then There Was One

Claude Stanley Choules, the last known combat veteran of World War I, died on Thursday in a nursing home in Western Australia. He was 110.
There is one known veteran left alive: Florence Green. She was in the Women's RAF.

I imagine the veterans of WWII will die out much faster since there were fewer young teenagers in service.
