The Telegraph reports that the author Sebastian Faulks has said that it should be a "matter for regret" that the contribution of First World War veterans was not recognised earlier.

His comments come in light of developing plans by the UK Government to mark the Centenary of the conflict. Faulks stated that the public reaction to the death of Harry Patch in 2009 - the UK's last First World War veteran - was a "very good example" of British regret.
