Last link to WWI gone at age 110

The last person to wear a uniform during the First World War died over the weekend.

Since that era is back in vogue now with Downton Abbey here’s an interest collection of anachronistic language bloopers.  “Just Sayin'” stuck out like a sore thumb at the time, but the use of “contact” (“try to contact, get in contact with…”) is really a more recent usage than WWI?  Huh.
