    Hmm, then he clearly doesn't quite understand who the Gurkhas are ;)

    Then who were you talking about? There isn't a 'British mountain regiment.'

    He could be referring to the Royal Marine Mountain & Arctic Warfare cadre - not a regiment by any means!

    No, more a training wing.

    I watched a few of the end fights on 'deadliest warriors' and some of them are quite entertaining. The matches are rather silly though, I mean a spartan vs. a ninja? The two are entirely different types of warrior (plus the spartan was wearing clothes which historically isn't quite accurate), the same goes for the gladiator against the Apache, though what bothered me about that one is that the Apache didn't simply run away and tire the gladiator out before filling him with arrows which is what would probably have happenned.
