Britain's Oldest Man Celebrates His 113th Birthday

Britain's oldest (known) male resident just turned 113. One of the founders of the Royal Air Force (RAF) and WWI veteran, Henry Allingham has five grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-great-grandchild. Allingham lived independently until 2006, when he moved into a communal home.

Henry Allingham became Britain's oldest man a few months back at 112, having outlived the previous record-holder, John Evans, who died in 1990. Allingham is one of two surviving WWI veterans in all of Britain.
