Below is a photo of the famous retired Musketeer, Count Ronald J. Von Devion.

He was recently called out of retirement, for the second time, responding to a challenge from a persistent opponent.

This, his second duel in a month, required he call upon skills that much younger duelists can only aspire to achieve.

You will note from the photo, his opponent managed to slice his forehead and nick his left ear.

However, and despite bleeding profusely, his mastery of the sword saved the day.

His opponent remains in hospital, bandaged from the waist up.
