Hooray Harry?

Letter by Wendy Harries

I am writing with reference to your article “Pacifist First World War veteran dies” on p3 of issue 2534. To link Harry Patch with Claude Choules as a pacifist is fair enough, but it is misleading to suggest that Harry refused to take part in WWI commemmoration events. Harry Patch laid a wreath on the Cenotaph at the 90th anniversary of Armistice Day.
