Harry Patch, born 17 June 1898. Died 25 July 2009
I am the only one that got through.
The others died whereever they fell
It was an ambush
They came up from all sides
Give your leaders each a gun and then
Let them fight it out themselves
I' ve seen devils coming up from the ground
I' ve seen hell upon this earth
The next will be chemical but they will never learn.
