The badass in the red circle is "Fighting" Jack Churchill (also known as Mad Jack), a British military captain during WW2 that was famous for using just a basket claymore in battle (though sometimes he also used a longbow). Despite the anachronism, Mad Jack's approach to warfare worked fairly well for him. He once took 42 German soldiers prisoner using only his trademark sword. He's shown here leading his commando unit into Nazi-occupied Norway (if you look, you can see the claymore).

The numbers on the arms are from prisoners of Nazi concentration camps. The numbers replaced their names while at the camps and they were tattooed on so that they could be easily tracked by the Germans. This is why we study history. So this never happens again.
