Campaign for a statue of Henry Allingham in Whitehall

Well done Simon Kirby who reports that he has written to the Ministry of Defence to request a statue to be erected in Whitehall of Henry Allingham, the oldest WW1 veteran, and Brighton resident. It would also be an appropriate tribute to mark the 100th anniversary of the conflict.

Can scarcely believe that it was five years ago that Henry Allingham died. I popped along to see his funeral procession with hundreds of others as a mark of respect and was moved to make a film about it.
