Britain’s oldest man, thought to be one of three surviving UK World War I veterans, is celebrating his 112th birthday. He has a great memory and can fill in the details of 100 years of history. As the last surviving original member of the Royal Air Force – formed 90 years ago – Henry Allingham visits school children to bring history alive. (Video and story at the BBC)
