Swiss Army beats hasty retreat

I think the Royal Marines did something similar a couple of years ago. They were meant to do an assault landing on Gib but hit spain instead, woops. :oops:

The Spanish where a tad upset over it all.....Officers and maps eh.

That's the official line anyway.

I like to think they were practising for an counter-invasion for when Spain decides to take Gib! :wink:

I blame the LC Branch personally - aren't they the subject matter experts who should deliver the marines to the correct beach?
 
Was it 42 who did a beach landing in the UK [senior moment] wrong beach and the deck chair brigade where gobsmacked!

Took a trip to Portmerion the old villa place many years back walking through the trees heard this Banzai! load of japs offloading onto the beach. Was just going to send them packing with my trusty walking stick when I noticed the tv cameras in the trees.
