Call a kilt a 'dress' in scotland and you will soon find out how good they are at fighting
sry ricky , i guess its actually a skirt since it requires one to wear a blouse or shirt and a dress is all of one peice .
Interestingly - and this is a fact most Scots don't mention - the modern kilt is an English invention. The true Scottish kilt was a sari-like arrangement of thick wollen cloth. Come the Industrial Revolution, Scottish workers in factories were too hot in them, and thus the English factory owners invented a more lightweight kilt.
trousers can be light weight , plus you dont get a cold draft on your johnson .
Trousers are not manly. Cultural differences dontcha know
Trousers are indeed manly, especially combat trousers.
Whoever heard of a combat kilt!
Have you never heard of the "Devils in Skirts" -- the (very respectful) nickname the Germans gave to the soldiers of the 51st (Highland) Division during WW1.
Nope. I don't study WW1, but I believe you.
Also known to the Germans as 'The Ladies from Hell'.
Also known Post WW2 in Minden as 'The Poison Dwarfs'.(but not to their faces!)
They had a very distinguished record in WW2 as well
Look up St Valery when you get a chance.
despite their penchent for cross dressing ,scots have a well earned reputation for being tough soldiers .i have to wonder though if the devils in skirts , ect appellations are something the germans actually said or something else ...ie. the ronson ,jug ,fork tailed devil debate ?
You forgot the "Whistling Death"
jappers would have a very hard time pronouncing " whistleing death " what the prolly actually said was more like " wisserwing deff " when spotting a corsair .
