Same planet, different worlds

The last known surviving British soldier to have fought in the trenches of World War I has revisited the site where he fought 90 years ago.

Harry Patch, 109, from Somerset, made the trip to Belgium to recall his part in the Battle of Passchendaele which claimed 250,000 British casualties.
And don't be deceived... Harry's no one trick pony.
Britain's last veteran of the World War I trenches, Harry Patch, has embarked on a new career as a magazine agony uncle.

At the age of 109, he has been recruited by lads' mag FHM to guide and advise the younger generations.
