'Faugh a ballagh'.
Motto of the Royal Irish Rangers.
 Now subsumed within the Royal Irish Regiment, the motto remains the same, and translated out of Irish means 'clear the way.' It originated in the Peninsula during the Napoleonic Wars when before Badajoz the English troops under Wellington faltered before the gates of the city, and the Irish were brought in to finish the job. Because they make the world's best soldiers - but only when they are fighting for someone else!
