Jutland veteran Henry (107) in a toast to HM SPECIAL guest Henry Allingham made a real impact when he attended the HMS Cossack Association’s 13th annual reunion at Eastbourne.

When the time came for the loyal toast, Henry, 107-year-old RNAS veteran of Jutland, Ypres and the Somme, pulled himself out of his wheelchair to lift a glass to the Queen. Expressing his astonishment, Association president Admiral Sir James Eberle told the guests: “History has been made tonight,” adding that he would inform the Palace of what he described as “this outstanding show of loyalty to Her Majesty.” Last year Henry also took part in the Remembrance Day parade at the Cenotaph.
