    This isn't a dig about dragging knuckles or jumping puddles, honest :)
  6. Thuggery buggery rape and the removal of Her Majesty's stores without prior consent or approval.

    Joking apart, in my day it was something like "to close with the enemy and destroy him, by day or by night, in any weather and in any terrain." The Americans have probably re-written that for us.

    Can anyone remember the 9 Principles of War? (we all remember the Master/First Principle of course, erm, don't we?).
  7. Close with the naafi as early as possible, deny access to steak and kidney pies and mars bars to any other unit , destroy all opposition in local bars and brothels , above all deny. :D
  8. "Destroy, deny, dominate etc etc in order to support, prevent, capture, etc etc etc"

    MSR mate -- you are thinking FAR too much! :p
  9. The Infantry mission is to defeat the enemy through close combat.
