- Strategy Page (03 Feb 2011) - One Gurkha, 40 Bandits, No Contest.
- Daily Mail Online (25 Mar 2011) - Gurkha Who Single-Handedly Fought Off Up To 30 Taliban Awarded Gallantry Cross
The news yesterday was a 1-vs-30 Taliban insurgents, coming off a Rambo movie with grenades, machine guns, land mines and RPGs. The whole works except the kitchen sink.
Still, I thought the 1-vs-40 train bandits in Indian in October 2010 was way more exciting where the fearless Gurkha was armed only with his khukuri knife in close quarters of the train cabin.
In any case, both are enjoyable reads.
Anyway, I am reminded of an entry I did on the sad plight of the mighty Gurkhas in Hong Kong. Click below.
