Yet Another Reason I Keep One Around

Not only is a great prop for models, and one of the few lethal weapons no one seems to mind you walking around with, but it is handy in case of Nazis. 

Wiki: "(Jack) Churchill resumed his commission after 
Poland was invaded. In May 1940 Churchill and his unit, the Manchester Regiment, ambushed a German patrol near L'Epinette, France. Churchill gave the signal to attack by cutting down the enemy Feldwebel (sergeant) with a barbed arrow, becoming the only British soldier known to have felled an enemy with alongbow in WWII.[7] After fighting at Dunkirk, he volunteered for theCommandos."

"Yup."

"See any action?"

Full marks, sir, full marks.
