As Brits are moving overseas to the colonies more and more, we find some of our ex-pats in foreign forces. I was watching a History channel programme on Apaches and there was this pilot of the 101st talking with the most cockney of cockney accents. Myself I have a half-brother serving in the USMC. Have our Yank cousins met englishmen serving alongside them or do you have relatives in the US forces? We had once upon a time a guy in Depot Para that was originally from the States. It is just weird seeing a chap with a maroon beret coming out with New Jersey-ese when you expect thick Glaswegian or Geordie gobbledigook.
