Maurice Faure, the last-surviving signatory of the Treaty of Rome, dead at 92.Where's that poster with the UKIP tendencies, he'd be good value here.

I thought we had a thread for animals somewhere, couldn't you find it?

Article here on the last toast of the Doolittle Raiders, of which three of four survivors have attended. Probably not really UK-obit worthy but a fair punt for your US-based pools.

Great escape in the news this week, 65 years on. Frank Stone, one left behind, featured here may get an obit for his role as a witness to what happened.
And he did.

Sad to hear. When watching QI only two weeks ago, they talked about St. Kilda and Gillies and I thought what an excellent candidate to add onto my DDP list. Seemed quite healthy though, having travelled there recently. Having just discovered the story, it's a lititle deflating that he's died so soon afterwards.
