nter Lieutenant General Adrian Carton de Wiart: a true manly man. I doubt you recognize the picture up above but you should! This man served in the Boer War, World War 1 and World War 2 and sustained various injuries that would most likely kill most poor excuses for men these days.
Adrian Carton de Wiart (25 at the time) enlisted in the British Military in 1899 under the name “Trooper Carton”. His first tour was in South Africa where he sustained wounds to the stomach and groin. In true manly fashion, this only motivated Carton to get tougher. He began to train harder and play sports regularly; a few of his favourite sports being shooting, polo and boar hunting.
