A good find John, really interesting. I don't think there is any mystery to his death, though. The killed in combat theory can be discounted with death certificates and newspapers evidencing death at home in 1942.
Hi Hack. I read that book The Art of Wrestling. It has NOTHING in common with what is in this video. Lol. A good book though highly recommend to everyone. Relw advertises traditional ENGLISH wrestling style in it, all holds are exclusively above the waist and tripping is a main tactics. Yes, and it is a standing wrestling, you figured. Gentlemen's Wrestle. Pretty much. Video makes him look like a modern MMA superstar, lol. They did that to Frank Gotch about 25 years ago...now they found a new victim Old English Relw...When I say they I do mean a group of weirdos who have revisionist views on history...and forge fabricate and re write history. Thats all.
I wonder if any of the members who looked at the video, noticed the mention of William Fairbairn. A most remarkable unarmed combat and weapons specialist who trained special agents and military men during and after the Second World War. If you haven't heard of this unassuming guy, (who apparently according to police records, had over six hundreds'fights' whilst serving in Shanghai) do yourself a favour and look him up on the web.
His self defence book (one of several he penned in '45) is also available free on the web.
What a great find.
