The SAS attack on Jebal Akbar in 1959.

The formation of Roger's Rangers in N America during the 7 Years War (and their subsequent incorporation as a regiment of the British Army, whose descendant still exists as a Rifles battalion).

In a way or three the 'colonial' era goes on. The seeking of spheres of influence, of exploitation and political and to an extent military dominance still goes on.

While old time empires have pretty much faded out, they have in many was just done what many 'iffy' characters do, 'just change the name and do the same'.

Soothesayer - I have a friend who was with the SAS during the Dhofar Rebellion, and as a kid I have swam in the shark net area of the NAAFI Club at Steamer Point, Aden, and listened to the distant gun and mortar fire in them thar hills to the north. Col. 'Mad' Mitch of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders was also a gutsy no nonsense sort of guy.

I rate the South Wales Borderers at 'Rorkes Drift', but not the political context in which the action was set.
