The WW1 soldier who went to war in his 60s.

I find this tale extremely sad and it's something I've only just researched recently. Henry Webber was far older than the maximum age to serve in the army, but had eventually succeeded in lobbying the authorities to allow him to join up. He had been motivated by a desire to serve with his three sons, who were all serving.

But in a horrible twist of fate, all three were to survive the conflict, while webber was to die on the western front.

Henry Webber was 67 years old.
