This was an American series shown on BBC in 1967 called 'The Rat Patrol' and gave the impression that it was this small unit and not the Long Range Desert Group, Popski's Private Army or the S.A.S that took on the Afrika Korps or the Italians behind the lines but this group of Yanks in jeeps.
There was an public and press outcry and it was dropped by the Beeb after only a few episodes.
I saw a few episodes but all I can remember is the flashy intro showing jeeps flying over the tops of sand dunes.
A quick look on IMdb reminds me that Gary Raymond played the 'token' Britisher.
