Only Head of State Alive Who Was In Uniform During WW2

The deplorable absence of The Queen in Normandy yesterday keeps being mentioned with the phrase "She's the only head of state who was in uniform/served during the war" (Andrew Neil for example just used it on the BBC).
Before this canard gains universal acceptance my I point out that the Pope also qualifies....


She's probably relieved she wasn't invited to attend. She is 82 after all. It must have been hard work for the veterans to listens to so many incredibly long speaches.

Nice catch, was he there?
