I'd heard of him before but didn't really know who he was or what he did. looks like he led a full life though.

Heh same here. I think I heard his name in some movie or cartoon. I had no idea who he was or what he did until I checked wiki, but nonetheless may he rest in piece.

He was related to General Haig from WW1. Who sent soldiers over the top on that fateful day when the dumb ass aristocracy in the army decided a push would be better than to wait, cause they were getting impatient.

Hindsight is 20/20, but you would have done the same thing had you been Douggie. Also, Haig wasn't aristocracy. He was the son of a distiller. He wasn't created as 1st Earl Haig until after the war.

And he was responsible for the absolutely brilliant Hundred Days, so don't knock him for doing what needed to be done.

I've never heard of him to be honest.

But R.I.P.

Never said he was aristocracy, I said "aristocracy in the army" i.e. the generals and marshal's who sat back at home sipping tea and having cakes and free from the war.
