Some of The Bears were chatting last night about what a hero Henry Allingham was when suddenly a shocking truth dawned on us all. When we transferred our blog over from Blogger a few months ago now, we forgot to include the Bear Heroes!
The Bears were very sad at the weekend to hear of the death of Henry Allingham, the world’s oldest man and one of the last surviving World War I servicemen. He died at the age of 113 in his care home in Brighton. Mr Allingham served with the Royal Naval Air Service in Word War One and last month he became the world’s oldest man.
