Veteran's death aged 109 leaves just two survivors who fought in World War I





The oldest Canadian veteran of World War I has died at the age of 109.

The death of John Babcock leaves only two Great War veterans still alive: Britishborn Australian Claude Choules, who is 108, and American Frank Buckles, 109.

Mr Babcock was among 650,000 men and women who served in the Canadian forces during WWI.

The last remaining soldier to serve in the British Army was Harry Patch, who died in July at age 111.
