Jack Churchill

Lieutenant-Colonel John Malcolm Thorpe Fleming “Mad Jack” Churchill was a British Army officer who fought throughout the Second World War armed with a longbow, bagpipes, and a basket-hilted Scottish broadsword.

He is known for the motto: “Any officer who goes into action without his sword is improperly dressed.” It is claimed that Churchill also carried out the last recorded longbow and arrow killing in action.
