I remember a young Royal Signals Gurkha names Gor Birkaji Gurung in Catterick Military Hospital who was discharged. My late first husband treasured the khukuri he gave us. I have it still today and keep it well polished.
I have always had great respect for the Gurkha soldiers and worked in different regiments with them for 25 years.
U gave always told people they were the only soldiers who VOLUNTEERED when their injections were due!
