They have their share of badass creeds:

** Navy salvage divers, although not meant for combat, can still pull of some pretty badass things.
--> A Navy Diver is not a fighting man, he is a salvage expert. If it's lost underwater, he finds it. If it's sunk, he brings it up. If it's in the way, he moves it.

It is the current motto of the British Royal Family.

** The Duke of Wellington's Regiment (West Riding): ''Virtutis Fortuna Comes'' ("Fortune Favours The Bold"). Considering this regiment was so {{Badass}} that the Duke, himself no slacker in the {{Badass}} rankings, once said of them "I don't know what effect these men will have upon the enemy, but, by God, they frighten me", it's safe to say they were seriously fucking {{Badass}}.

* This is Older Than They Think: The Romans had one. ''Vae Victis'', literally meaning "Way of the victor". In practice, it meant 'woe to the conquered' (or 'I won, so I get what I want. You lost, so you've got nothing to say about it'). Appropriately, they stole it from a would-be conqueror who coined the phrase after temporarily occupying the city (when they tried paying him to go away).
