I don't know about that man.

I don't really know enough to argue it much, but I have worked with them a bit, they are quality troops, and my old unit has tons of respect for them and our special ops community has learned a lot from them and modeled much of our training and methodology from them.

I consider them top tier as far as military forces go, in the world.

British commandos trained Darby's Rangers during WWII, granted that was years ago but surely they still have some elite forces.


edit: I met one of Darby's original rangers, his wife was the editor of the little newspaper in my hometown.

The Gurkhas are from Nepal ,they arent really British . Sort of like the foreign legion for England. I stand corrected on the Gurkhas being in Singapore . They have a contingent there as well.

Sounds to me like some people are having fantasies of being "Snake" and shooting your way out of NYC or LA.

Shake that mans hand next time you see him, and tell him Darby's legacy is alive and strong in the Ranger Regiment today. No one puts that beret on without learning about the courage of Darby and his men.

Better folks move out of major cities at least five yrs in advance. You will need the time to learn how to live out here.

After the crisis hits, you would be just a refugee.

I think the last of the 1st Battalion has passed. I found this account from The Ranger Force: Darby's Rangers in World War II.
