Favourite military photo

Gotta go with this man Carton De Wiart, "The Unkillable Soldier", he fought across the Boer War, WWI and WWII, getting shot in the eye, the back of the skull, and having his hand blown off in the process along with being shot many other times.

(Won't allow me to post links or images as I currently only have 2 posts, but seriously, look this guy up, he is undoubtedly one of the most heroic soldiers who has lived and deserves to be much better known than he is.)

His book is a little gem too, there's a paragraph in it about discipline, RSM Lord gave that sums it all up perfectly. I posted it on here some time back but can't find it with 'search'? The book's called 'To Revel In God's Sunshine', that's what JC said to his victims on the drill square as he terrorised them in the pouring rain...

"Today gentlemen we're going to revel in God's sunshine!"

And then I went and found it...

"In the 3rd. Battalion, The Parachute Regiment I had a Corporal Ray Sheriff; he was a very good Corporal of great spirit, a good athlete and boxer and he had fought with the Battalion in North Africa, Sicily, Italy and Arnhem. In searching through our men and trying to get accounts of what had happened to them, I could find no trace of Corporal Sheriff.
We had been in the prison camp for three months with still no news when I heard that he was in a German reception hut and was in bad shape. I collected together what few cigarettes I could and using my pass, which enabled me to move around a little, I went to the reception hut.
I can see this long low gloomy hut now, packed with men of different nationalities. I looked around for Corporal Sheriff and eventually saw him to my far left - sitting on the floor with his head hanging down. He was dressed in some strange uniform which had been provided for him. I walked over to him and said, "Hello Corporal Sheriff, how are you getting on?" And that Corporal - three months after the battle - with no great cause to love me at all, with great dignity stood up to attention, faced me and said, "Hello Sir, it's good to hear your voice." and I realised he was blind.,, this was the most harrowing experience I think of my whole life. I don't claim - I would not claim that he was saying this to me personally, but here he was for the first time after all the suffering of the past three months, and he heard a voice from the family. Even in those circumstances he felt that he was back with that family..."
