TO GO OVERNIGHT SATURDAY 16 AUGUST TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY MICHELLE FITZPATRICK BRITAIN-LIFESTYLE-SOCIETY-AGEING-MEN (FILES) This file picture taken on April 3, 2007, in Istanbul shows an elderly Turkish man sitting on a bench during a sunny day in Bebek Park. The last time Derek Dobbs needed to make a hospital visit, the 84-year-old British war veteran called Eileen Goodwin to come round to help. Like a growing number of elderly British men, the old soldier needs help since his wife Corrine died 10 years ago, leaving him alone in his home in the village of Lower Tuffley in Gloucestershire, western England. In Britain, the number of male over-60s living alone has hit one million for the first time, according to research by the Help the Aged charity, and the phenomenon of "home alone" old men seems likely to rise further.
