#OTD in 1940, groups of enemy soldiers disguised as refugees were infiltrating British lines to snipe at soldiers of @3rdUKDivision at Helchin in 🇧🇪. Once discovered, they were captured by soldiers of the @GrenadierGds @Mother_of_Tanks @USArmy_CALL @usacac ImageImage
In recent years we have seen our opponents using techniques such as the use of disguise, deception, and fifth column activities to create advantage, much as the enemy did in 1940. #Ukraine #littlegreenmen @WarInstitute @wavellroom ImageImageImage
These illegal and morally dubious methods may have short term benefits, but they impose costs on the users. We are alive to the threat and train to counter it. ‘ Bello te praepares’ as we say. @MattBak63401251 @kingsbury_ollie @DSD_Kings Image
