Gassed, Shelled, Bayonetted and Buried Alive ... Still the Germans Couldn't Kill Him

Submitted into: Miracles of Courage Category,

On: 2007-11-07




It tells the story of indestructible World War One soldier George Webber, as follows:-

Corporal Webber, from Newport, Gwent, Wales, enlisted at the start of the war in 1914… He received his terrible wounds in December 1917 at the Battle of Cambrai in Northern France during a German counter-attack … he was overcome with mustard gas during the fighting … While he struggled for breath an explosion went off nearby, spraying his left side with shrapnel and knocking him off his feet.

Then, as he lay helpless on the ground an advancing German soldier bayoneted him front to back. Unconscious and bleeding, he was assumed dead by his comrades who buried him in a shallow grave. But … he regained consciousness and then realized that he had been buried.

Eventually George managed to push his hand up through the earth – which must have been some time later because part of his chest had been eaten by rats. Fortunately he was spotted and was dug up.

He later underwent 23 operations and eventually made a full recovery.

What a testament to the inherent recuperative powers of the body and spirit! What could stop a man like that? Well, read on …

Ironically he died in 1949 when two medicines he was prescribed by his doctor reacted with each other and poisoned him. It is really very sad when you think about all he went through.
