Veteran Harry Patch, the last surviving soldier from WWI, passed away this week at his home at the Fletcher House care home in Somerset, a facility managed by IAHSA Board Member Andrew Larpent.     Andrew offered a tribute to Mr. Patch during his remarks at IAHSA’s conference in London in July, sharing with us the universal respect and admiration of many for his contributions to the War.
