When I was a young child, we would occasionally gather apples from a farmer’s garden without his knowledge.

On a specific day, a group of around six of us engaged in a mischievous adventure.

As usual, we sprinted away, filled with laughter. However, unfortunate luck struck when one of our companions stumbled, resulting in the farmer capturing him.

During our family dinner that evening, I shared the tale with my dad. Surprisingly, it came to light that the elderly gentleman was the esteemed Royal Navy featherweight champion during World War II.
