" Once more I hear the laughter with which you greeted every hardship . I see you in your bivouacs, shivering with wet and cold ,now scorched by pitiless and burning sun .Uncomplaining , you endure hunger and thirst and wounds ; and at last your unwavering lines disappear into the smoke and wrath of battle .Bravest of the brave , most generous of the generous ,never had a country more faithful friends than you "

" Faithful friends but pitiless foes "

No , not our strutting , prancing , self adulating , martial arts __ arm chair warriors …but " the stubborn and indomitable peasants of Nepal "

The GURKHAS !

The quiet soldier with a jungle hat and whetted kukri tucked in his belt , is not a man to mess with ! { Boston Globe today}
