Wondered if anyone could give me a clue as to how I go about verifying, whether or not someone previously served in the British Military or not. I married a Yank a few years back and moved to the States. I have been lucky enough to get a job as a firearms instructor at a local range. Since the gun business over here is full or ex military from all over the world, I keep bumping into other British expats. Nearly all of them claim to be ex-army, navy etc. Most of them with a wink wink, nudge nudge.....say no more mate...indicating some kind of SF training or regiment. This normally leads me to the conclusion that they are full of shit and thats the end of that......... However I would hate to be tarring them all with the bollocks brush if in fact one or 2 are for real.......Question is how, (without interrogating them and making myself look a total prick) do you know?.................Any ideas?
