R.I.P Henry Allingham

Standard

The world’s oldest man has died.

113-year-old World War I vet Henry Allingham passed away on Saturday July 18th in the English coastal town of Ovingdean.

Allingham chalked up his long life to “cigarettes, whisky and wild, wild women” and sources close to the war veteran said he “possessed a great spirit of fun.”

Queen Elizabeth II is said to be “saddened” by the news of Allingham’s passings, according to a spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace. She continued, “He was one of the generation who sacrificed so much for us all.”
