The Greatest Generation

A World War II veteran has tragically died just hours before attending an event to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

Robert ‘Al’ Persichitti, aged 102, was travelling with a group of other veterans to attend a ceremony in France when he passed away.

He fell ill while travelling by ship in the North Sea and although he was rushed to hospital in Germany by helicopter, he died shortly after.
