State Funeral Passes House

Due to the efforts of people like The Dominion Institute and the 90,000 people who signed their online petition (of which I am proud to be one) a motion to recognize all the fallen soldiers of the First World War through a state funeral upon the death of the last man to have served at that time has been introduced and has passed in the House of Commons.

With only 3 members still with us and the youngest of the bunch being 105 years old, the day is coming when there won't be anyone around with first hand knowledge of the military at that time. At least now they can rest easy knowing that their sacrifices and those of the 600,000 other armed service members that served during WWI won't be forgotten.
