I ask cause I started playing here in Europe and just about every team is a knock off of some real world unit. I myself play with a crew style themselves as Royal marines. They go all out too..... right down to the issue semi-dayglow-green beret and "globe & Crown" cap badge.
I think the main annoyance for most people, just using you as an example not bitching you out, would be that you're not a Royal Marine, haven't gone through the training and bullshit they do and haven't earned the right to wear it. I personally have no issue about impressions though I am split on the isssue of wearing patches and cap badges of currently existing entities (unit whatever you call them) say RCR or Royal marines for example. For disbanded or historical units such as anything from WWII, the Soviet Military or the Vietnam War, I have NO issues, that's more Historical re-enactment as far as I'm concerned
