Pte Harry Patch

On our trip on Saturday, we saw this memorial stone opposite the cathedral.
Private Patch was 111 when he died.
  I felt extremely humble.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Gosh that is an age! And to live through so many wars too.

    Harry Patch also had strong connections with Bristol, and worked on the building of the Wills Building – part of the University, which stands at the top of Park Street.
