I don't understand

Why are these Rat Patrol SAS guys looking so British and sporting weird looking drum fed machineguns?



Everyone knows the Rat Patrol was mostly American, had Jeeps and Brownings and were IN COLOR!

Noticed the driver has a Fairbairn-Sykes on his belt...

They can't be British, the steering wheel is on the left side...where it belongs.

Are those Lewis guns in .303? The American car-and-truck salesman could sell Jeeps to anybody!

NotClauswitz: The pan-fed machineguns are Vickers K, aka: Vickers G.O.

Not Lewises; Vickers K aircraft machine guns.

Chevrolet trucks, Vickers K machine guns.

Is the driver in the foreground anyone in particular from the SAS? David Stirling? Paddy Mayne?

For all its hidebound tradition, no one did irregular forces half so dashing as the British.
