Where do I start in addressing the misstatements we have here? It's daunting to know where to begin. 1. British regimental ties generally but not always slant "toward the heart", the opposite of many but not all American regimental stripe ties. Bear in mind that there are numerous ties of British professional associations, clans, and other affinity groups that involve patterns other than stripes. 2. In the United States military, those who have served in an active theater wear their decorations and campaign insignia over the left breast, as opposed to the right, with the exception of certain specific decorations such as the CMOH. There is to the best of my knowledge no change in tie stripe direction that matches this custom. 3. All military bolt-action rifles of this century eject to the right, regardless of national origin. This includes the US 1903 Springfield and 1917 Enfield, the ubiquitous 1898 Mauser, the British SMLE, the French Lebel, the Swiss Schmidt Rubin, the Soviet Mosin-Nagant, and the Japanese Arisaka Type 38 and Type 99 rifles. Unsurprisingly, engineers build weapons to function best for 88% of the population.
