My son sent these links this weekend.
The first is the amazing story of a Gurkha who single-handedly fended off 40 bandits, but only after it became apparent they intended to rape an 18-year-old girl as well as rob the train's passengers:
The second article starts off discussing a Gurkha who got in trouble in Afghanistan for having beheaded a Taliban warlord, then goes onto describe the ferocity and courage of the Gurkhas in general.
Both stories are, in their own way, inspirational.
Hope Johnny doesn't get too inspired as he sets off for Afghanistan.
