Major Sir Hamish Forbes, Bt

It's kind of too bad that I find out about these folks when they pass away, but Forbes had an absolutely extraordinary career as a WWII prisoner of war. By my count he tried escaping 13 separate times during his captivity using a variety of methods. He was captured during the British retreat from Dunkirk and finally won his freedom in April of 1945 and basically spent the entire war being a royal pain in the ass to the Nazis.
