Vet awarded free beer for life

Harry Patch, the 109-year-old and last surviving World War I veteran in Britain, has been awarded with free beer for life for his service and bravery during the two world wars. The Rose and Crown, a local pub where Harry drank when he was young, is offering this to honour his service.

"I must be the envy of many a younger man, being offered free beer in a pub. It's like being a child in a sweet shop," Harry says.
