WWI Veteran Dies

Recommended Posts


Hello All,

One of the five remaining veterans of World War I has died at the age of 108, it has been announced.

Sydney Maurice Lucas was born in Leicester on 21 September 1900. He was among the last batch of conscripts to be called up in 1918.

The Armistice meant he escaped the horror of the trenches but went on to serve in World War II.

He died on 4 November in his home town near Melbourne in Australia where he moved in 1928. He was just 17 when he was drafted into the Sherwood Foresters in August 1918.


Rest In Peace
