A wonderful quote by Field Marshall Sam Manekshaw


"If anyone tells you he is never afraid, he is a liar or he is a Gurkha."

I doubt that Gurkhas are different.

The myth of the Gurkhas are that they are fierce fighters

the reality is that they fight fiercely!

Three of the nine living VC winners (including winners of teh Aussie and NZ versions) are gurkhas

I can imagine that they are as frightened as anyone in war but they harness their fear.
