Fernand Goux


 

Age: 108

 

Summary: one of the last two penultimate World War I veterans in France who was sent to the front line with the 82nd Infantry Regiment for the last week of the war in November 1918, but the French government did not recognize him as a veteran as he fought less than the requisite three months, in which the last official veteran thus remains Italian-born Lazare Ponticelli (who died earlier this year) with Louis de Cazenave as the last recognized native Frenchman to have served.
