Imagine serving your country just to die alone in a nursing home with no friends or family to celebrate your life or achievements. This nearly happened for Harold Jellicoe Percival who was a veteran Bomber Command Crew in WWII who died last year at the age of 99. Luckily, the nursing home posted an obituary in the local paper and “Coe’s” story was picked up by social media. This veteran died alone but he his death brought tremendous support and his story touched hundreds of people. I am sure the show of support he received would have put a smile on his face!
