At 67, Henry Webber was one of the oldest known British men to die in active service.

Tonbridge-born Mr Webber was far older than the maximum age to serve in the army during WW1, but had eventually succeeded in lobbying the authorities to allow him to join up.

He wanted to fight with his three sons, who all came back from the conflict, but Henry died on the Western Front.

Now his story is being recorded by Horley Town Council in Surrey where the family lived.

BBC South East's Paddy O'Connell reports.
