Hoo-ah!

You need a war cry to make you feel more like a man?

How about "ouch!"?

What a fantastic idea!

My suggestion would be something along the same lines as the Yank one, but altered to suit the British mentality.

Mee-aah! (said in a Welsh accent)


Possible definitions for hooah include[3]:

Referring to or meaning anything and everything except "no"
What to say when at a loss for words
Good copy
Roger, solid copy, good, great, message received, understood, acknowledged
Glad to meet you, welcome
"All right!"
I don't know the answer, but I'll check on it; I haven't the foggiest idea
I am not listening.
"That is enough of your drivel; sit down!"
"You've got to be kidding me!"
Thank you

Ok it sounds gay but we need a British equivalent, something to stir the blood and strike fear into the heart of the enemy!

Any suggestions?
I always thought something along the lines of

"Oh, jolly good"

would strike the correct note and turn our enemies bowels to water.

"Put the bloody kettle on" - in preparation for when lots of very angry looking squaddies with big pointy things on the end of their bang sticks come jumping over the top of their trench - as immediate action drills are obviously to brew up :D

Whilst working with the US airborne many moons ago was amazed at the way they would shout their unit motto/titles at each other whilst saluting eg "All american" and "Screaming eagles". In response we created our unit motto of "Green Monkeys" When down very well I seem to remember. The irony of course went over their head.

Ironically, given the times we live in, and their recent deployment, the Paras certainly used to use the bizarre 'whoa mohammed'

After a full day of intense shelling, attacks and counter attacks at the bridge, the Paras fixed bayonets and charged the Germans, who were preparing for another assault. They charged to the battle cry, of 'Whoa Mohammed', which had been adopted during the 2nd Battalion's service in north Africa, when an Arab used the term to slow his donkey.
So another meaning would be 'slow down, you fools'... :lol:
