    ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
    All human ills he can subdue,
    Or with a bauble or medal
    Can win mans heart for you;
    And many a blessing know to stew
    To make a megloamaniac bright;
    Give honour to the dainty Corse,
    The Pixie is a little shite.

    A True Soldier. I remember reading quite a lot about his exploits when I was younger...Dien Bien Phu, Algeria. I believe the main character in the movie "The Last Centurions" was based on him.
