Three of the four surviving British veterans of World War One have helped mark the 90th anniversary the of end of the conflict at the Cenotaph in London.

Henry Allingham, Harry Patch, and Bill Stone led the country in observing two minutes of silence.

The event marks the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when the Armistice Treaty was signed.

112 year-old Henry Allingham, who is the UK’s oldest man and partially deaf and nearly blind, has said he would like to forget the horrors of the war he fought nine decades ago, but cannot.
