Goodbye Harry Patch.

Harry Patch's funeral takes place tomorrow and there was a very moving musical tribute to the last Tommy by Radiohead on the Today programme this morning. It's a bit Sigur Ros, if you know what I mean but there are lyrics on the site. You can listen to it here.

After that go and read Trevor Royle's "The Flowers of the Forest", his history of Scotland and the First World War, and if you're not weeping by then pick up Lewis Grassic Gibbon's Sunset Song.
