One of the few remaining WWI veterans has died at his home in Sydney, Australia age 108. Born in Leicester in 1900 Sydney Maurice Lucas was drafted into the Sherwood Foresters aged just 17 in August 1918 - only the Armistice of 11/11/18 saved him from a life, and maybe death, in the trenches. He did go on to serve briefly in World War II with the army of his adopted homeland Australia however ill health forced his discharge in 1941.
