    World War I Veteran(s)

    As far as I know, there is no such list. However, it was the 1930s, as apposed to the 1910s when WWI took place. However there were much less of them and they were all older at the time - if you give it another five years I'd say the list on wiki will be just about as reliable as it can be... but at the moment new names keep springing up in the media all the time... a new Fascist Forces members was added to the list on wiki last week so there are clearly much more out there than originally thought. I think it's safe to say there must be 50+.....

    Can we stop talking about Jade Goody? I'd rather not be reminded of her again... or at least not until Halloween

    The Dead Of 2009

    Dancer and choreographer Frankie Manning has died of pneumonia at the age of 94... I was going to put him on my DDP team as well but I had fears as to whether he'd get an brit obit or not.

    The Dead Of 2009

    Polish artist Eugeniusz Waniek has died at the age of 103. The centenarians seems to be dropping fast this month... Levi-Strauss and Niemeyer are hanging on in there though... perhaps having their names on DL gives them something to live for...

    Gives the coroner the chance to finally confirm those rumours about her... Those rumours being?..... That she was a man?!

    Going to work this morning I heard the news that Jack Jones had died... coming home I heard breaking news on the BBC that Jack Cardiff had died.... Ah well it's inevitable: Hit the road Jack. Sorry........

    Hollywood Possibilities

    1923, I believe, and still alive. Thanks, I'll add that Checked Dracula, I think it's safe to presume she is the last surviving cast member as most of the other actors were older in the film and there are only three or so actors (in uncredited roles) that have no birth/death records... Josephine Joseph, who was the hermaphrodite, could still be alive... but it's unknown for sure. I did consider Josephine Joseph but I concluded that since she seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth and had a disfigurement... she's most likely dead but I'll put a question mark next to her name... Maybe a new thread is needed here... any ideas what to title it?

    The Guardian have given Ned a mention in the News in Brief section on their site... does that count as a sound obituary for the DDP?

    The Dead Of 2009

    Very interesting to see the ways in which people are reacting to his death... Unsurprisingly the twisted neo-Nazis at the vnn forum (who like to spend most of their time bragging about how they beat black people up and making anti-semitic jokes) are reporting it as "Sad News" and are calling him a "brave warrior" blah blah blah On the other hand Kirklees Unity hope that he rots in hell!

    Fidel Castro

    I think it was a mistake putting him on the list.... both Thatcher and Prince Philip will go before him... who knows maybe even Mugabe will

    The Dead Of 2009

    Dave Arneson, of Dungeons and Dragons fame has died of cancer aged 61, just a year after his fellow co-creator Gary Gygax died from a heart attack....

    Nazi of SS

    Siegfried Knappe, one of the last survivors of Hitler's bunker died back in December 2008 at the age of 91. I was considering him for inclusion in my DDP list a while back but there was no evidence to suggest he was still alive so I presumed that he was already dead... This follows the death of Armin D. Lehmann in October 2008 and means that there is only one, possibly two occupants of Hitler's Bunker still living.... 1) Richus Misch (born 1917) - Hitler's bodyguard 2) Günther Schwägermann (born 1915) - adjutant to Joseph Goebbels, survived WWII but not heard from since

    Pete Burns

    According to NME, doctors have found 8 stones in each kidney but they can't operate on them because of where they're located. He claims that he'll be in hospital for a long time yet but I think he'll be out in a few weeks... with a full recovery.
