    Petition for a State Funeral for the last British "Tommy".

    petitions.number10.gov.uk/las…al/

    In the near future the last remaining survivor from the Great War will pass away and so too will the last link to World War 1. This petition is for a State Funeral to honour all those who fought in the Great War.

    Thanks.

    From my understanding of the Great War, most involved returned back to the UK and wanted to speak nothing of the atrocities they had witnessed. I am not too sure that a State Funeral is a fitting tribute to the millions that lost their lives. Remembrance Day is a method we can all look back on those that gave their lives though all the past and present wars.

    I for one, will not be signing,. For me, it just doesn't feel right to do so.

    I'm sure when I first heard this muted that all those who were still alive didn't want a state funeral so I guess their wishes and those of their family should come first, after all it was our freedom of choice they fought for and it'll be a pity to over rule theirs...

    Really?:roll:

    This fella is clearly still alive, I'd imagine he's totally over the moon with people petitioning the Government to celebrate his death in advance.:whistling:

    It is not celebrating his death, where do you get this from? It is celebrating/remembering his life and the countless like him.

    If you don't want to add your name then fine, we live in a Democracy thanks in no short part to the veterans of both World Wars.
