Let's get back on topic folks.
This one was in Toronto during the blackout/flooding this past summer.X_para76 said:RGJ's and the SAS? Sounds like this fella read a copy of Andy McNab's book "Immediate Action" and fabricated himself a military career. Where did you meet this fella? I only ask because I've heard that there's a Commissionaire in London that claims to be ex SAS.
That brush is covering a fairly wide swath.Lightguns said:Troll commissionaires working in non-governmental buildings, you will find a walt.
Lightguns said:Yeah, OK, that is a right of passage for young privates. Heck, TOP GUN was all the rage, I was a fighter pilot instead of a Infantry Corporal. It worked and I make no apologies for the WALTing because the ladies were so fine.
Hatchet Man said:Yeah i get that. I have wondered if you Walt civilian roles. Saying I am a mercenary is so much easier than explaining what I actually do, which usually gives me blank stares.
Lightguns said:Did not have to. Back then we had an ex BSAP (Rhodesian police), a Sealous Scout and a Grey's Scout on our TQ3. So we hung around with real merc's!

I suspect we'll see/hear some interesting things.
Danjanou said:Not really. All members of the Rhodesian Security forces (Army, BSAP, Guardforce, INTAF, RhAF etc.) wheter born in Rhodesia, citizens, immigrants, or foreign volunteers served under the same terms of service. ( rates of pay etc.) There were no mercenaries in the RSF.
Also it's spelled Selous Scouts
I don't know about that; according to my dictionary* one of the definitions of a mercenary is, " a soldier serving for pay in a foreign army." So, by that definition, if you were a Canadian serving in the RSF then you were a mercenary, and from anecdotal evidence that's how the Canadian government also viewed it.Danjanou said:There were no mercenaries in the RSF.
