  • Interviewee name: Henry Allingham

  • Henry William Allingham was born on 6th June 1896 and, at the time he gave this interview, was a supercentenarian, World War I veteran and at the age of 113 years and 13 days, the oldest living man in the world. Here Henry talks about his earliest memories (around 1899), those of seeing his Father who was ill with tuberculosis. His father died when Henry was 3 years old and he was then brought up by his Mother and grandparents. Henry died not long after this on the 18th July 2009.

What an extraordinary man- despite his age and the fact that he is in a wheelchair you can still see his personality shining through.
