🗺 📍 Europe - World War II •
🗡 Lieutenant Colonel John “Mad Jack” Churchill had a motto: “Any officer who goes into action without his sword is improperly dressed.”
He was referring, of course, to the basket-hilted Scottish broadsword that he armed himself with during battle. And no, Mad Jack Churchill was not a Viking warrior or a medieval knight. He was a British Army officer who fought during World War II.
🎯 That’s right, while everyone else was firing rifles and loading their tanks, Jack Churchill preferred some good old fashioned hand to hand combat. In addition to his sword, he occasionally used a longbow. Yes! A bow and arrow!
🇬🇧 After Germany invaded Poland, he became part of the British Expeditionary Force to France. During one of his forces raids, he ambushed a German patrolman, shooting him with a barbed arrow. His shot earned him the title of the only British soldier to have felled an enemy with a longbow during the war.
🎶 After serving in the British Expeditionary Force, Churchill volunteered for the Commandos, a special forces division dedicated to carrying out raids against German-occupied areas of Europe. As a commando, Churchill gained notoriety for charging into battle, playing the bagpipes, and throwing grenades.
🗡 At one point as he was marching through Sicily, with only his sword, he and a Corporal managed to capture 42 German soldiers. For his service with the division, Mad Jack Churchill was awarded the Military Cross and Bar.
⛓ He was captured twice by the Germans and escaped both times.
⚔️Eventually, even Jack Churchill realized it was time to slow down, and in 1959 at the age of 53 he officially retired from the Army. However, he remained as eccentric as he always had.
