TV Guide: December 3, 1966 - Larry Casey, Chris George and Justin Tarr of "Rat Patrol"

I used to stay up as late as I could hoping this show would come on. I didn't have a TV guide or the internet.


Hans Gudegast as Captain Dietrich from the TV show "The Rat Patrol."

Raymond as Jack Moffitt in The Rat Patrol, 1967.

I want DarkStream to lead a patrol. You may take WolfClaw, WhiteFur, TawnyShade, SorrelClaw, MistyFur and WhitePaw with you.

WWII men of the new formed British SAS usually supported by the Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) in the North Africa Campaign.


Those of us who grew up watching The Rat Patrol harbor a latent interest in desert warfare of World War Two. While The Rat Patrol was entertaining TV, it also took some historical liberties. The series was loosely based on the British Army’s Long Range Desert Group, an elite unit that used Chevrolet trucks (shown above) more often than jeeps to conduct raids and reconnaissance patrols behind the lines of the German Africa Corps.


The Rat Patrol (Season 2) Great series!! I've seen them all!! I rate this 5 stars!!
