Lieutenant-General Sir Manley Power. 

Yeah, you read that right. Manley Power. Look at the smug face on that guy. That is the face of a man who knows that his name is Manley Power. He also had a great-grandson, Admiral Sir Manley Laurence Power. 

I have nothing to say about either of them, historically speaking. They were both distinguished officers, fought in the conflicts of their days (Napoleonic and WWII, respectively), got some medals and whatnot. 

Mainly I just … I mean …

One thought on “Names again

  1. I like it. I enjoy some of the funny cricketer’s names I come across at work. Jack Crapp is and will always be my favourite, I still can’t say it see it or think about it without laughing. I also quite like Brian Brain – but it’s more confusing than funny.
