What was the biggest loss for a British Army on American soil before the American Revolution?

a. wolfe's loss on the cliff of Quebec b. Washington's defeat at Fort Necessity c. Amherst's fall at Louisburg d. Braddock's ambush near fort Duquesne ========================================================= Last time I checked, General Wolfe actually won the Battle of the Plains of Abraham at Quebec (although he died in the process). Furthermore, the Plains of Abraham were - and still are - in Quebec City, which is in the Province of Quebec, which is in Canada. As such, it is not 'on American soil.' Louisbourg (not Louisburg) was actually captured twice by the British from the French. Neither was a loss for the British, and there was not a third time. And furthermore, as above, Louisbourg was - and still is - on Cape Breton Island, which is part of the Province of Nova Scotia, which is in Canada. As such, it too is not 'on American soil.' I heartily recommend spending a day exploring the restored Fortress of Louisbourg. It's less than an hour south of Sydney, Nova Scotia.

World War 2

What are some symbols used by the British army during World War 2 particularly ones involving arrows?

The British army wore patches on the sleeve of their uniform that were called "formation patches". These patches would designate divisions or brigades. Swords was quite common to see on these patches. Some patches used spearheads, which resembled an arrow head. There was one patch that was a RED square with a Bow & Arrow, with the box bent ready to shoot the arrow. I have a photo of this patch but forgot what it represented; most likely a Anti-Aircraft unit based in UK. The British army also wore trade or qualification or speciality patches that designated a soldier was a bomb displosal member, for example. Here are two examples of formation patches that used an arrow. These may or may not have been worn in WW2. 54th Division - Coronet On Crossed Arrows on blue. 6th Anti-Aircraft Division - Red Arrow; White Target On Black These and many more patches can be seen on this site. Anti aircraft command had formation patch of a black arm drawing a black bow and arrow on a red square patch.

Who better US Army or British Army?

The answer to this question is and will always be biased. Your country will allways be the best.

America is one of the most well know and most reputable military forces in the world. But its not the best trained.

The UK is less equip but better trained.

For example a us marine is trained for 12 weeks.

A royal marine is trained for 32 weeks.

But if america attacked the united kingdom, or vice versa. I belive america would win... because of the man power

History of England
Gulf War
Famous Speeches
British Army

Who was the former British Army Colonel famous for a speech he gave during the Gulf War?

Tim Collins We go to liberate, not to conquer.

We will not fly our flags in their country

We are entering Iraq to free a people and the only flag which will be flown in that ancient land is their own.

Show respect for them. There are some who are alive at this moment who will not be alive shortly.

Those who do not wish to go on that journey, we will not send.

As for the others, I expect you to rock their world.

Wipe them out if that is what they choose.

But if you are ferocious in battle remember to be magnanimous in victory. Iraq is steeped in history.

It is the site of the Garden of Eden, of the Great Flood and the birthplace of Abraham.

Tread lightly there. You will see things that no man could pay to see

-- and you will have to go a long way to find a more decent, generous and upright people than the Iraqis.

You will be embarrassed by their hospitality even though they have nothing. Don't treat them as refugees for they are in their own country.

Their children will be poor, in years to come they will know that the light of liberation in their lives was brought by you. If there are casualties of war then remember that when they woke up and got dressed in the morning they did not plan to die this day.

Allow them dignity in death.

Bury them properly and mark their graves. It is my foremost intention to bring every single one of you out alive.

But there may be people among us who will not see the end of this campaign.

We will put them in their sleeping bags and send them back.

There will be no time for sorrow. The enemy should be in no doubt that we are his nemesis and that we are bringing about his rightful destruction.

There are many regional commanders who have stains on their souls and they are stoking the fires of hell for Saddam.

He and his forces will be destroyed by this coalition for what they have done.

As they die they will know their deeds have brought them to this place. Show them no pity. It is a big step to take another human life.

It is not to be done lightly.

I know of men who have taken life needlessly in other conflicts.

I can assure you they live with the mark of Cain upon them. If someone surrenders to you then remember they have that right in international law and ensure that one day they go home to their family.

The ones who wish to fight, well, we aim to please. If you harm the regiment or its history by over-enthusiasm in killing or in cowardice, know it is your family who will suffer.

You will be shunned unless your conduct is of the highest -- for your deeds will follow you down through history.

We will bring shame on neither our uniform or our nation. (On Saddam's chemical and biological weapons.) It is not a question of if, it's a question of when.

We know he has already devolved the decision to lower commanders, and that means he has already taken the decision himself.

If we survive the first strike we will survive the attack. As for ourselves, let's bring everyone home and leave Iraq a better place for us having been there. Our business now is north.
