The modern day desert rats are the descendant units and battalions of the british army involved in the war in north africa in WW2, the desert rats (7th armoured brigade) are famed with winning the battle of el alamein in WW2 and more recently the large part they took in taking al basrah in southern iraq, the brigade has a high amount of scots in it due to the 4th highlanders making up a large percentage of the infantry in the brigade.
general- hmm i say we send in the USMC to take southern iraq.
clever general- well you see the USMC is diluted and seriously overated, well it is a desert, lets try the desert rats
