Harry Brown lives!

Indeed. 88 would make him born in '30. Commando Training at Achnacarry would have had to have been before it closed in '46. Wasn't aware there was such a thing as Boy Commandos. That an the intelligence missions in 'Egypt, the Middle East and Germany' make me think the old boy may be over egging the pudding a wee bit.

And do you know what? It it gets him his wrinkly leg over then all power to him.
Right enough, now I've read the article, either he is a young looking 90 something who fibbed about his age or it's a case for mythbusters. Pity.
