Australia's Oldest Man Dies

The last remaining Australian to serve in World War One has died at the age of 110, Veterans' Affairs Minister Alan Griffin said on Wednesday.
John "Jack" Ross, who was also Australia's oldest man having turned 110 in March, died in his sleep early Wednesday morning at a nursing home in Bendigo in the state of Victoria.
Ross was 18 when he enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force in January 1918 and trained at the wireless training school, but the war ended nine months later and before he could be posted overseas. He was discharged on Christmas Eve that year.
"Mr. Ross showed his willingness to serve Australia and her allies in what was an extremely tumultuous time in our history, and for that we are grateful," said Griffin in a statement.
"While he did not travel overseas, he completed his training, ready for deployment."
Griffin said Ross was the last of 417,000 Australians who served in World War One and one of only a handful of remaining veterans from that war.
Ross served Australia again in World War Two as a member of the Volunteer Defense Corps. As a civilian, he worked for the Victorian railways before retiring in 1964.
"It now falls to Australians everywhere to ensure that veterans memory is kept alive. We must ensure that their contribution to Australia's wartime history is passed on to future generations, so that their sacrifice is never forgotten," said Griffin.

This is a sad one for us Aussies. I saw this on the news.
It's excellent that he served our country. I'm proud of him.
It's good that he had a peaceful death, that he just died in his sleep and he wasn't in pain.

You think that was sad? What about when the last Titanic survivor died?

It was like the end of an era
