London: Britain's oldest man, who survived two world wars and witnessed 24 British prime ministers come and go, has died at the age of 110.
     
Reg Dean, a former Army chaplain and teacher, died on Saturday aged 110 years and 63 days, his friends said on Monday.
     
He was born in Tunstall, Staffordshire, on November 4 1902, and became Britain's oldest man in June 2010 after the death of Stanley Lucas, 110, of Cornwall, the Sun reported.
     
A former United Reform Church minister, Dean was the life president of the Dalesmen Male Voice Choir in Derbyshire.
     
During the World War II, he was stationed in Burma, but continued his work as a minister until he retired at the age of 80.
     
The father-of-one, from Wirksworth in Derbyshire, moved to the county in 1947, after living for a short period in Stratford-on-Avon. He was married three times.
