Jaegerkorps

Literally, the "Hunters' Corps", actually more "Light Infantry" or "Rifles".

Small but excessively nails Danish Army SF unit, with alarmingly difficult selection procedures and refreshingly democratic ways - all officers joining the Corps spend at least a year as an operator in a patrol before taking on an officer-style job (as at late 90s). Traces lineage back to volunteer Rifle units formed to brass up the Brits during the Napoleonic Unpleasantness.

Partner unit in the Royal Danish Navy is the Froemandskorps (Frogmens' Corps).

Well thought of by THEM.
