France's last surviving Great War veteran Lazare Ponticelli, who served in the French Foreign Legion (1914-1915) and the Italian Army (1915-1918) has died. He is the sixth veteran to die this year (three French, one German, one Pole and one American) and there are now only 13 verified veterans of the Great War left.

Lest we forget.
rest in Peace M. Ponticelli
Veteri frondescit honore
