RIP: Francesco Domenico Chiarello

Francesco Domenico Chiarello
5 Nov 1898 - 27 Jun 2008


ZUI this article from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation:
One of the last veterans of World War I, Italian man Francesco Domenico Chiarello, has died at the age of 109, the defence ministry said overnight.

*******

Mr Chiarello died on Friday in the Calabria region of southern Italy where he was born on November 5, 1898.

*******

Italy now has only one surviving veteran of the Great War, Delfino Borroni, 109, who lives in the country's north.

ZUI also my last post regarding WWI veterans.
