Well, I found myself a new hero.

John Malcolm Thorpe Fleming Churchill


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Churchill

http://www.wwiihistorymagazine.com/2...-profiles.html


Funny thing is, I'd never heard of this guy before. You'd think with all the History Channel I watched I would have at least heard the name. But, nope.

Some of the thing he did are just mind boggeling. Taking over a town with only a sword and one other officer? Killing Germans with arrows? Freeing 700 Isralie prisioners? Yep, he did it all.

Just thought I'd share this.

Ernest Alva Smith is another British(well Canadian)Soldier of WW2 who did things that bordered on the unbelievable - among other things, one of his favorite weapons was a spiked warclub. He was the only Canadian to win the Victoria Cross in WW2.

He was promoted to Corporal Nine times. He was also busted back to private nine times.

I liked the part about him throwing his briefcase out the train window every day when he passed his backyard. That's hilarious.

I wonder how he'd do up against Chuck Norris? He'd lose of course but I wonder how long he'd last.
