In which G.M. Norton regales you with the extraordinary tale of an extraordinary war hero.
As a child, I remember watching the 1977 James Bond film adventure and being struck by two things. One was the beauty of Bond Girl, Barbara Bach (later wife of Ringo Starr) and the other was the seemingly indestructible juggernaut of a henchman, Jaws.
No matter what was thrown at him, Jaws, played by Richard Kiel, somehow managed to survive.
Little did I know that a real-life Jaws figure existed. Although, rather than sporting metal teeth, this extraordinary human being wore an eye patch instead after being shot in the face.
The chap in question is one Lieutenant-General Sir Adrian Carton de Wiart.
