Rufus Excalibur Ffolkes, Former SBS?


I'm just going by all the Commando-stuff, the training he gives his troops and the boarding actions; that Ffolkes was previously in the Special Boat Service.
Anyone else have other takes on this?

Indeed, I wondered the same thing myself. You'd think that they would at least mention this is in passing to establish Ffolks' bona fides. Still one of my favorite action movies that I never tire of watching time and again.

Nah, just a really militant wing of the Boy Scouts.

Fortunately, Ah keep mah feathers numbered for just such an emergency!
