In a desperate fight, a British SAS soldier who had run out of ammo beheaded an advancing jihadi with a shovel.

The Brits, for all their faults, are still bad azz.

Next time maybe bring more ammo.

And after killing him, the Brit then used the gunman’s own weapon to kill more militants.
Sources say the brutal battle took place six weeks ago during a patrol in eastern Afghanistan.
Just as they thought their time was up, two US Apache helicopter gunships appeared, forcing the insurgents to withdraw.
A US Chinook then came in and rescued them. By the time they arrived half the SAS team had no ammunition left.

  1. If we ever sit down in your fancy bush plane, remind me to tell you some stories about the SAS.

  3. Yup the SAS are bad ass. The Gurkas have done their share of the bad ass activity as well.

    Have a read:

  4. I once read that the standard load for Brit infantry was only five magazines? Surely, if that's true, The SAS knows better? regards, Alemaster

    1. SAS isn't standard infantry, serious operators. The SAS I saw in Afghanistan varied on weapons and ammo loads. Most had either 6 or 8 double magazine carriers and had anything from HK MP5, HK 33, HK G3, and M-16 variants. They also had their pistol (P226) with at least 3 mags. You would also have one or two that would have a L96 or L115 for the long reach capabilities.

  5. He would have done more good being deployed to London. The Brits are wasting blood and gold fighting in Afghanistan when they are losing their nation to immigration. What a waste. But the idiots in the US government are doing the same thing. Bring our troops home and use them to guard our borders.
