I worked closely with the British army during my last tour in Germany. NATO special weapons unit (tactical nukes). They are great soldiers and terrific allies. I worked side by side with them during the day and drank beer with them at night down at the local bars. They love to get into fights after duty hours. After a few brewskis, they start scrapping with the locals. When they run out of Germans to scrap with, they start in on any Americans who happen to be nearby (I was at a remote site in northern Germany, and there weren't many yanks in the area). After the brawl is over, they will buy you a beer and treat you like a long-lost brother. And when they run out of Germans and Americans to fight, they fight each other. That's what makes them great soldiers; you can count on them when the shit hits the fan because they love to fight! British NCOs command a lot of respect and fear. I saw more than one British private take an ass-beating from their sergeant for fucking up in the field. I could only smile in amazement; those who are familiar with US military law know that it's a serious violation in the politically-correct US military to strike a soldier. Used to love going to the field with them; they would always share their liquor ration with me! Too bad their government doesn't allow them to own personal firearms. Panzer Out

I was working with some guys from the RAF who were over here in the US of A. Some were suffering from government induced gunophobia, but there were a few that had their heads on straight. They would browse the local gun shops and rent range guns. Some of these guys talked about emigrating when their time in the RAF was up. It's really sad to see the look in a man's eyes when he says, "I wish I was allowed to have a gun for self-defense." As noted above, they are great guys.

I worked with the Brits while I was in Saudi. Great bunch of guys. One of them told a friend of mine that he once used his Enfield to play cricket and broke the stock off of it. I laughed my ass off.
