Two veterans, who survived in one of the deadliest commando units of World War Two, have died in their nineties with hours of each other.

Mark Radcliffe, 94, and 92-year-old Joe Glass both passed away within 12 hours of each other on Sunday.

They both lived in Helena, Montana and were the last members of the First Special Service Force (FSSF) – an elite unit made up of American and Canadian soldiers who captured 27,000 enemy prisoners between 1942 and 1944.
