Daniel Grainger served in the Royal Scots
during WW1. He had three wounded stripes. On one occasion he was
lying badly wounded in no-man's-land when two German soldiers left
their trenches and, without stopping, grabbed an arm each - they'd
had enough and they dragged him to the British lines as their ticket
to a quieter life. After the last injury he was told that a piece
of shrapnel had lodged aginst his spine and that he would never
walk again. Fortunately, he had already been up and about for a
few days before being given the bad news.
