Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


One regiment of the British Army you don't hear enough about in the media's war coverage is the Brigade of Gurkhas. The Nepalese troops have participated in many wars for the UK and are currently stationed in Iraq fighting alongside coalition forces.

In addition to the recent war in Iraq, they recently fought in Afghanistan during the military action against the Taliban government. A telling quote in the article comes from Major Charles Heyman: "You wouldn't want to meet the Gurkhas on a dark night, especially when they've got their bloodlust up."
