Charles, Gordon of Khartoum.

Emotional father to Corporal Jones of Dad\’s Army. But also the reason Gladstone\’s affectionate moniker was reversed. He was known as GOM, here\’s Wikipedia\’s take:
Gladstone was known affectionately by his supporters as \”The People\’s William\” or the \”G.O.M.\” (\”Grand Old Man\”, or, according to Disraeli, \”God\’s Only Mistake\”).

However after Gordon\’s death some reversed that to MOG \”Murderer of Gordon\”.

History \’O\’ Level studied 76-78 British and European Political and economic history 1815-1914. Ithankyou!
