If you are a young, keen, thrusting MSO on exercise in Schweinfurt with the American Rangers, however, do not assume that the group of 8 gentlemen dressed in Loden Green carrying Rifles are the "enemy in disguise" and initiate a full ambush, including full on capture and search drills.Oh, I've got a better one.
When on your what we were told before joining was called a Trained Soldier Course- to DS strong objection on joining - and lined up in an ambush role with two stop groups on either side and the kill group in the middle, fully bombed up and ready to go, at death o'clock in the morning in late December on the wilds behind 8 Sigs at Catterick Garrison, and Santa Claus in full regalia walks in front of your group, DO for ****'s sake shoot at him and send in Shermulys at his general directions in copious amounts, otherwise, the DS who was in the Santa suit - and his buddies, will start shouting at you in very loud noises for that time in the morning for NOT shooting at him and sending Shermulys at his general directions in copious amounts.
Pleas from us that no-one would dare shoot at Santa fell on deaf ears.
Not only will the US Ranger "enemy" following about 400 yard behind find that funny, but they will be particularly amused by the Very angry German hunter with his K98 Mauser, saying "You ******* English, I shot your Grandfather in the head with this Rifle, Now I shoot you, ********".
And you might find that ever after you are a little less keen and thrusting.......
