A lot of us up here called the Black Watch the "Whack Blotch". Doesn't go down too well if one of the Poison Dwarves is in the room though.
They we referred to as the “Black Death” in BATUS Canada in 2002.
They’d been out there on the Med Man type ex with 7 Bde over the summer before us (19 Bde) and had been a total bunch of cnuts down town and caused a lot of bad feeling.
Obvs the civvies out there had no notion of different battlegroups rotating through the place, they just thought we were all British Army cnuts.
I’d heard similar dits from earlier tours about the RHF being nicknamed the “Royal Highland Fascists”. Might have been from whatever they got up to in Kosovo?
