Radiohead – Harry Patch (In Memory Of)

Back in August Radiohead released a song dedicated to the memory of the last British veteran of World War 1, the late Harry Patch.

All proceeds of the song are being donated to the The Royal British Legion, and the song can be downloaded from the Radiohead website here.

As Thom Yorke states on the Radiohead website:

It would be very easy for our generation to forget the true horror of war, without the likes of Harry to remind us.
I hope we do not forget.

As Harry himself said
“Irrespective of the uniforms we wore, we were all victims”.
