Major Sir Wilfred Patrick Thesiger, CBE, DSO, FRAS, FRGS, (3 June 1910 - 24 August 2003) was a British explorer and travel writer. As you can clearly see, he really knew how to dress. A true Englishman.

Sir Charles Aubrey Smith, CBE was an England Test cricketer who became a stage and film actor, acquiring a niche as the officer-and-gentleman type, as in the first sound version of The Prisoner of Zenda. In Hollywood, he organised British actors into a cricket team, much intriguing local spectators. Wikipedia
Born: July 21, 1863, London, United Kingdom

Charles Burgess Fry, known as C. B. Fry (25 April 1872 - 7 September 1956), was an English sportsman, politician, diplomat, academic, teacher, writer, editor and publisher, who is best remembered for his career as a cricketer.John Arlott described him with the words: "Charles Fry could be autocratic, angry and self-willed: he was also magnanimous, extravagant, generous, elegant, brilliant - and fun ... he was probably the most variously gifted Englishman of any age."

At Oxford he gained a total of twelve sporting Blues for representing his university, and in one year he captained the football, athletics and cricket teams. To fill in time he also played Rugby Union at university, as well as for Blackheath and the Barbarians. In addition he proved himself to be a fine boxer, golfer, swimmer, tennis player, javelin thrower and sculler.

A brilliant track and field athlete, C.B. equalled the world long jump record with a jump of 23' 6½" (7.17m) in 1893. At the world's first international athletics event held at London's White City stadium in 1894, C.B. won both the long jump and 100 yards sprint.

Fry's achievements on the sporting field included representing England at both cricket and football, an FA Cup Final appearance for Southampton F.C..

His talents were not confined to the sports field. C.B. also stood as Liberal candidate for Parliament in Brighton; he was a director of a training ship, a journalist, a deputy and speechwriter for the Indian delegation at the League of Nations.

It was whilst he was involved in the latter role that C.B. was offered the vacant throne of Albania.
