The airborne card made laugh, it reminds me of the yellow cards American soldiers were given back in the 80's, they were given out by the american MP's in the Nato Bar in Oerbke when the yanks were visiting.

It went something like this.

dont drink with with British squaddies
dont gamble or play cards with British squaddies
dont fight with British squaddies.

Why?

Because they will beat you at everything.

That brings back memories, we were in Grafenfer ( spelling ??) 82nd Airborne btn came from U.S. as a REFORGER unit, after splattering themselves across southern germany we had a couple of getting to know you BBQ's etc, several of them, mainly the younger guys were very wary of the "brits" because of those cards.The wording was something along the lines of, "They will outdrink you, out fight you, and take all your money at cards. Sadly the cards part of it did'nt happen, i was down about 50DM, but gained a set of wings, a smock and a good friend from Utah who still keeps in touch

It must be gen. The spelling of psycho (phsyco) confirms.
