Gentlemen, I have a question which is somewhat outside my area of expertise: Could someone explain what a Ranger is (simply described as elite infantry on t'interweb, what ever that might be)? I understand, annocdotally, that there are Brits who are "Ranger qualified", is this possible (sounded unlikely to me) and if so what does it actually mean? Done a US course, served on attachment to a Ranger regiment? Please note that this is not on a Walt hunting mission or anything similar, simply a question that fell out of a conversation this morning. From a quick internet search my understanding is that they seem to be akin to what we would term Commandos (Google/Wikipedia) and that there is a whole Ranger Regiment which seems to be some sort of light/air assualt infantry. I seem also to recall being told that they support SF and that our SFSG was modelled on them.
