They were made of different stuff in those days. My granddad was only 4 feet 11 inches tall, but he'd fight anyone no matter how big they were. Maybe it's because he was Irish. I think his rifle with bayonet fixed was taller then he was.
I try to be the man my dog thinks I am.

Though Walter had a proper prosthetic leg made for him, he prefered to use the peg leg instead, especially when gardening, he would use it as a seed drill!
He worked untill 70. He was given a job as a signal man with the railways after loosing his leg.
Nothing would hold him back.

He died well into his 80's when I was 17, I still miss him today.
