Last Surviving British Airborne Padre of WW2 Passes

May be hard to believe that this etheral looking young cleric got into a frail wooden and canvas glider with other troops, crash landed under fire in enemy territory, ministered to the living and the wounded, and buried the dead, but there was a whole generation of chaplains like Canon John Vaughan-Jones and they are now gone.

Again, kudos to nephew Tom for this link.
