Arthur Leggett, one of WA's last World War II veterans, told Gibson on The Catch-Up host what keeps him ticking, some enduring learnings from his life, recited his favourite poetry and how it feels being a living symbol of Anzac spirit.

"You're representing all those blokes that didn't come back, and you know damn well you're not very far from joining them," he told Gibson.

"Sometimes I think I wish my dad could be here, he was in the first war, and he passed away while I was a prisoner of war in the second war.

"So you can get a rough idea how I feel about wars."
