"Always remember the first rule of combat..."

There seems to be some confusion about what the first rule of combat is. Contenders include:

  • Try to finish with the same number of holes in your body you started with.
  • Never eat yellow snow.
  • Admin your animals, your kit, then yourself.
  • Never piss off a Gurkha.
  • Never attack without at least a 3 to 1 superiority in numbers.
  • If in doubt, brew up.
  • Look after your feet.
  • If the enemy have fruit and you have guns... it shouldn't be too hard a battle.
  • Never deploy with 3 Para Mortar Platoon behind you.


Feel free to add any more should you be inclined to do so.
