Radiohead haben einen Song aufgenommen, der an den letzten britischen Veteranen des Ersten Weltkriegs erinnern soll. Er wurde unglaubliche 111 Jahre alt und hieß Harry Patch.

Recently the last remaining UK veteran of the 1st world war Harry Patch died at the age of 111.
I had heard a very emotional interview with him a few years ago on the Today program on Radio4.
The way he talked about war had a profound effect on me.
It became the inspiration for a song that we happened to record a few weeks before his death.
It was done live in an abbey. The strings were arranged by Jonny.
I very much hope the song does justice to his memory as the last survivor.

Den Song “Harry Patch (In memory of)” könnt ihr hier für 1 Britisches Pfund kaufen, der Erlös geht an die Royal British Legion.
