From CNN…

The last known survivor of the 70 million combatants from World War I, a British sailor who witnessed the surrender of the German fleet in 1918, has died at the age of 110.

Claude Choules, who was born in Pershore, western England, died in his sleep at a nursing home in the Western Australian city of Perth on Thursday.

Choules was declared the last-known WWI combatant earlier this year after the death of U.S. veteran Frank Buckles, also aged 110.
