Badass.

Lt Colonel Fighting Jack Churchill. aka Mad
Jack,
fought throughout WWY with a longbow
and a broadsword, was also known to bring
bagpipes.
he volunteered for the Com mantles. not
because he knew what they did but
because it sounds dangerous."
he crawled out of a concentration camp.
about the end of WM. he commented " it
wasn' t for those damn Yanks, we could have
kept the war going another 10 years,"
Now thats a BRITISH soldier if ever there
was one!
Normal soldiers with guns

He also achieved the sole longbow kill of the entire war.

Great... so people will start remembering what soldiers do in wars based on achievements...

What has COD done?
#74 to #73 - saxong (09/30/2013) [-]
Great, so nobody ever remembered sole accomplishments of soldiers or leaders before COD.  Washington crossing the Delaware River on Christmas?  Nobody ever remembered that before video games, certainly not artists or historians.  Do you realize how dumb you sound?  This is the kind of logic that makes sheeple think that video games make people murderers, a tangential link at best because I happened to use the word achieve in a sentence?  Grow the 			****		 up and realize that sometimes people do things that are worthy of recognition, what do you think achievement meant before video games?

... you missed my joke...
Achievement as in video game achievement... ie kill a guy with a longbow instead of your rifle.

I actually respect and approve of our boys doing their job, and think they should get more recognition. You misunderstood my reference.

Also games don't make people killers, and gun control is ******** .

Your Right he is a bad ass but you sir need to get your info on your pics right !
#69 to #47 - hwest (09/30/2013) [-]
But he is charging a beach, with a longsword, in front. Even if it is a training exercise..
#52 to #47 - anon (09/30/2013) [-]
I don't understand why people think a camera man would stand on a beach BEFORE the soldiers and facing away from the enemy.
User avatar #17 - brewswillis (09/30/2013) [-]
what kind of a sick-minded person do you have to be, to want a world-war to continue.
User avatar #76 to #17 - thebrownydestroyer **User deleted account** (09/30/2013) [-]
Some people like the violence, especially if you're a sword wielding madman who shoots people with arrows instead of bullets.

Jack Churchill was born in Hong Kong to British parents. However, his parents WERE from England, not Scotland. Oxfordshire in fact. He was not Scottish but had an admiration for their culture.
User avatar #41 - PVTDickStryker ONLINE (09/30/2013) [-]
That picture is of a training exercise...
#1 - kkkenny (09/29/2013) [-]
that isnt a longsword its a rifle wrapped in plastic to protect it from sand and seawater
#6 to #1 - drldrl (09/30/2013) [-]
Bigger picture. You can see that it's a Scottish Broadsword. Large round handle and a short blade.

Everyone is thinking "bad ass" while I'm sat here thinking "dumb ass".
User avatar #91 to #89 - GnRNoD (09/30/2013) [-]
That's because you're a pussy, I don't mean a regular pussy (like the rest of us that think of him as a "bad ass" but wouldn't use a sword) I mean such a pussy that you think he's a dumbass, he's a bad ass, did he ******* die? no he didn't he survived the war even after chargin with a longsword.
Tho I have to comment on this... Who the **** uses only 1 single handed melee without a shield? I would have used two swords or a sword and a shield.
User avatar #93 to #91 - kyoutu (09/30/2013) [-]
He may have survived but he was unable to give her fellow man decent back up, support and cover. Thus making him not only a dumb ass, but an ass hole as well.
User avatar #95 to #93 - GnRNoD (09/30/2013) [-]
Making himself an easy target is not enough support?
It dosn't matter how you do it as long as you do it right.
User avatar #96 to #95 - kyoutu (09/30/2013) [-]
Dude... everyone there was an easy target, they were attacking from sea....
You're a retard.
User avatar #97 to #96 - GnRNoD (09/30/2013) [-]
I'd consider the crazy dude with the sword charging at full speed an easier target than the rest, also you choose your own weapons.

In 1944 he led the Commandos in Yugoslavia, where they supported Josip Broz Tito's Partisans from the Adriatic island of Vis. In May he was ordered to raid the German held island of Brač. He organized a "motley army" of 1,500 Partisans, 43 Commando and one troop from 40 Commando for the raid. The landing was unopposed but on seeing the eyries from which they later encountered German fire, the Partisans decided to defer the attack until the following day. Churchill's bagpipes signaled the remaining Commandos to battle. After being strafed by an RAF Spitfire, Churchill decided to withdraw for the night and to re-launch the attack the following morning. The following morning, one flanking attack was launched by 43 Commando with Churchill leading the elements from 40 Commando. The Partisans remained at the landing area; only Churchill and six others managed to reach the objective. A mortar shell killed or wounded everyone but Churchill, who was playing "Will Ye No Come Back Again?" on his pipes as the Germans advanced.

A similar strategy didn't work out quite as well for the Polish.
