Adrian Carton de Wiart. Served from the Boer War to WW2. Got shot about two dozen times. Ripped his own fingers off when the doctor refused to amputate. In between world wars, he lived in Poland and spent 15 straight years shooting anything that moved. Got captured in Italy during the second world war, escaped five times. Had so many bullets in him by the time he retired that he jingled when he walked.

When asked about his time in the first world war, which cost him an eye and a hand, he said "Frankly, I enjoyed the war".

Metal coffin maker with 167 confirmed tank kills; the largest in history. Also the guy doesn't give a shit on military bearing, his officers keep him from promotion because they hate his goatee.

Digsby Tatham-Warter


>A Company were dropped away from the target of Arnhem Bridge and had to go through Arnhem where the streets were blocked by German forces. Digby led his men through the back gardens of nearby houses instead of attempting to advance through the streets and thus avoided the Germans.[1] Digby and A Company managed to travel 8 miles in 7 hours while also taking prisoner 150 Nazi soldiers including members of the SS. During the battle, Digby wore his red beret instead of a Brodie helmet and waved his umbrella while walking about the defences despite heavy mortar fire. When the Germans started using tanks to cross the bridge, Digby led a bayonet charge against them wearing a bowler hat. He later disabled a German armoured car with his umbrella, incapacitating the driver by shoving the umbrella through the car's observational slit.[1]

>Digby then noticed the Padre pinned down by enemy fire while trying to cross the street to get to injured soldiers. Digby got to him and said "Don't worry about the bullets, I've got an umbrella". He then escorted the padre across the street under his umbrella. When he returned to the front line, one of his fellow officers said about his umbrella that "that thing won't do you any good", to which Digby replied "Oh my goodness Pat, but what if it rains?"[7]

There must something with the damned brits, always being lunatics under heavy fire.

We really should discourage Cracked-tier posting even if at one point that site wasn't absolutely disgusting.

Since this thread is here though, Amedeo Guillet. One of the few Italians to distinguish himself even by international standards.

I forgot about this fellow, always thought he added a British sense of humor to the Arnhem battle. My Grandparents lived in Arnhem when Operation Market-Garden took place, and always remembered that a group of Germans dragged a piano out of a house and into a trench, and sang through one of the nights.
