Beginning with a reflection on the current state of the World 100 years on from “The War To End All Wars” this film, a tribute to Harry Patch (1898 – 2009), last surviving soldier of WW1, asks the question: “Has their sacrifice been betrayed by our failure to end war?” The combined military expenditure of The World is currently in excess of $1.5 trillion. Estimated cost to eradicate global poverty: $150 billion. “It’s comin yet for a’ that, that Man to Man the world o’er, shall brothers be for a’ that”.- Robert Burns. This film is a montage of archive footage of WW1 and stills taken from subsequent wars. It is a personal thought-provoking collection of images and film.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Film: A Tribute to Harry Patch are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
