LONDON One of Britain's last surviving veterans of World War I has celebrated his 113th birthday. Henry Allingham, who is also Britain's oldest man, marked the occasion Saturday with a cake and a party.
His cake was delivered by the Royal Marines, and a Royal Navy helicopter flew overhead.
Allingham was surrounded by his family and said he "never expected this honor."
Allingham joined the Royal Naval Air Service precursor to the Royal Air Force in 1915. A year later he took part in the Battle of Jutland, which was the war's largest naval battle.



Best part?


Allingham credits "cigarettes, whisky and wild, wild women and a good sense of humour" for his longevity.
Get me a carton of smokes, a shot glass and the adult services section on craigslist! I'm going to live for a long time! :hi5:
