World's Oldest Man Dies

A little bit of history has vanished today. Henry Allingham, the world's oldest man and oldest surviving British veteran from World War I, has died at age 113. Allingham was the last known survivor of the Battle of Jutland, perhaps the greatest battle of World War I, reports CNN. The former soldier was dedicated to the military and the memory of fallen troops, and appeared at numerous memorial events in his later years. When asked how he'd want to be memorialized, Allingham said people should think of those who died in the war. "Remember them, not me" he said.
