Why, certainly. The Marines want you to know they are coming. They will even play music.
Yep, my students are army, members of various British regiments including Scots Guards ( born fighters lol) Para Regt, a couple of tank regiments, the Yorkshire Regiment and of course Gurkhas. We also have some from Corps such as the Royal Signals and Royal Army Medical Corps ( surprisingly pugnacious), Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, there's a couple of PTIs but no Royal Military Police as they are used for practice when the squaddies are out on the pop.
I was in the US Army and we didn't rule out yelling on the battlefield. There are times and situations when it's useful to stun or disorient an enemy long enough to give you the upper hand.
Given all the various units you've listed (that's a lot of men), I'm willing to bet some of them have or would yell in combat at times. In fact, come to think of it, you guys (UK) were the last guys to use bayonets in combat (just a few years ago). Hard to imagine such close quarters fighting to the death without some yelling.

He didn't say he did. How long have you been beating your wife?
WTF? Beating my wife??? What are you on??
Yeah, I did get his 'point'. Very strange'point' to make considering all I did was ask a question based on this comment from Tired Yeti: "I was in the US Army and we didn't rule out yelling on the battlefield". Maybe he saw action, maybe he didn't. I just asked where he saw action (if he had) but never got a reply.I think that's sort of his point. Tired_Yeti didn't say he saw action. He said he was in the Army.
Not, in my opinion, the best way of making that point, but I think that's what he was getting at.
