'World's last' WWI veteran Florence Green dies aged 110

A woman thought to be the world's last surviving veteran of World War I, has died just two weeks away from her 111th birthday.

Florence Green, from King's Lynn in Norfolk, joined the Women's Royal Air Force (WRAF) in 1918 when she was seventeen.

Speaking to the BBC in 2010, Mrs Green said she had served breakfast, lunch and tea in the WRAF, and had got to know many different people during her service.

She added that she "learned a lot of different things", and had a "good time" there.
