Florence Green, 1901-2012

“A woman thought to be the world’s last known surviving service member of World War I has died aged 110. Florence Green, from King’s Lynn, Norfolk, served as a mess steward at RAF bases in Marham and Narborough.” If you missed it last May, make some time for Even Fleischer’s amazing piece on Green and Claude Choules, who were then the last two veterans of the Great War. And now there are none.
