None Braver


Even by the extraordinary standards of this fine warrior race, Rifleman Bhanubhakta Gurung is hard to better.

Idle had the great honour of serving for a month in Hong Kong with these spirited, friendly and hugely impressive people. He was given a pair of crossed-kukri cufflinks as a memento and wears them with pride.

The Idle advice to the MoD is to recognise that you can't change a useless lardy ignorant chav into a soldier as easily as twenty years ago, so recruit another four regiments of Gurkhas and PAY THEM A REASONABLE PENSION THIS TIME, you useless gits.

A true hero - I spotted his sons were Ghurkas too. All we need now is the nasal cavity foraging sporran-licker to post a moving tribute to him on Labour Youtube and the circle will be complete (Apols to Darth Vader).

If forced to choose, the Tuscan would rather eke out the rest of his days in yellow peril infested Hong Kong than white chav plagued Basingstoke.

The Hitch said...

As we know I am an admirer of our wily oriental friends.
They know what sacrifice and duty mean, something we used to understand but now dont .
Our society has been watered down by homosexual propagandists, feminazis and all round cunts.
I could tell you (but wont)some truly humbling stories of the things my friend Eves family have had to endure to achieve what they have.
Asia is the future.
The way the Ghurkas have been treated is just a sympton of our fat ,bloated soon to be dead, degenerate society.

Scroblene said...

Absolutely; to this weak-kneed government, bravery exists as putting your expenses through hoping nobody will notice the discrepancies.

I heard this morning that we are apparently paying much more just to get convicted foreign criminals to return home, from where they will eventually return to sponge of us.

The cheque (not very much - we aren't millionaires) I sent to HMRC yesterday will pay for one of these gits to get about as far as Dover. I'd much rather it went to keeping a Gurkha, with his loyalty and sense of duty and friendship, for a good deal longer than the scavenging scum we bow down to here.

As a kid growing up over there the Ghurkas were my heros, and Jim Corbett too.

idle said...

Welcome, dc. Over where? HK, or India?

DirtCrashr said...

Thanks Idle - India, just south of Bengal on the east-coast in Orissa - missionary kid. Very rural area with lotsa Adavasi and Santal tribals.
Summer of '68 I was Ten and we went up to Darjeeling to get away from the heat of the plains. We flew from Calcutta in a godawful NOISY old Military Surplus DC-3 that belonged to Indian Airways.
Stayed at Mt. Hermon School in a small rental cottage, doing our school lessons by correspondence. We attended a graduation ceremony of the Women's Climbing Class of the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, and there were Ghurkas playing bagpipes in an Honor-Guard band. Tenzing gave out the Graduation scrolls.
After much begging and pleading our Parents got us the Kukuri back then and me and my brother and a friend cut down many young saplings and built a lean-to fort deep in the Govt. Forest across from where we were staying - oops! Good thing we weren't caught. "Idle" - heh, reminds me of Idli! ;-)

True about the lardy chavs, Idle.

I had the misfortune of pulling against the Ghurkas in a tug-of-war competition at the Royal Tournament. I shall blog about this in the near future.

I ended up in a right state is all I'll say. (Second only to the RUC in strength.)

idle said...

Good tale, dc. Both my grandfathers were Indian Army cavalrymen, so I like tales from the plains and the hills.

The thing about Johnny Gurkha is that he lives life at an acute angle to the earth, e-k (when you think about it), whereas we tend to be a right angles to the ground. So no wonder they are good at tug-o-war.

electro-kevin said...

Ha ha.

Very true. I'm sure height is a disadvantage sometimes. We City cops were all over 6'2" and I was the shortest therefore at the front.

Elby the Beserk said...

My father served with Gurkhas in India. Adored them; indeed, he adored India and the Indians. The Urdu he picked up there alwayse served us well when we visited Indian Restaurants (so exotic, once).

The treatment of the Gurkhas and their pensions by our various governments is nothing short of criminal.
