90 years on

On this day, Armistice Day, the 90th anniversary of the ending of the first World War watching Henry Allingham at 112 laying his wreath at the Cenotaph the final words of King Lear came to mind

"The oldest hath borne most: we that are young,
Shall never see so much, nor live so long."
