The death of William Evan Allan in Melbourne overnight at 106 represents one of the greatest milestone's in this nation's short history. His passing severs our living link with World War 1 and the founding of the Australian Navy.

William Evan Allan 1899 - 2005

" Of the 330,000 servicemen who served overseas in World War 1, Evan Allan was the very last man standing. His death is the end of an era. His passing closes the door once and for all on that "Great War" which, with its 15 million death toll, was meant to be "the war to end all wars"."

cheers, mate.
