"Come And Fight A Gurkha!"

he yelled..

 

During a savage action, Gurung twice snatched up Japanese grenades and threw them back before they detonated. Another landed on the outer edge of his trench and Gurung attempted a third “return to sender”, but the grenade went off in his right hand, destroying his fingers, shattering his right arm and wounding other parts with shrapnel.

Gurung ignored his many wounds and carried on firing with his left hand – a considerable feat, as the bolt-action rifles of the day were made for right-handed use. “Come and fight a Gurkha!” he yelled, as wave after wave of Japanese troops tried for four hours to overrun the position.

The story of the Gurkhas is amazing at the very least and nearly unbelievable above that.

 

Come and fight a Gurkha? Like hell!!! I'm crazy but not THAT crazy.
