WW I: How many survivors are there?

Zero is not the right answer. As of today, there are at least five men alive who fought for the UK. I suppose the total number across the EU might be 20-30 men.

The men could pass for 10-30 years younger than their current age. That's not too surprising -- to live this long they must have very unusual genes. Their aging rates are probably in the slowest 0.0000001 %ile.
