The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Wonder why the gurkhas are like that.
I doubt that Gurkhas are different.
The myth of the Gurkhas are that they are fierce fightersthe reality is that they fight fiercely!Three of the nine living VC winners (including winners of teh Aussie and NZ versions) are gurkhasI can imagine that they are as frightened as anyone in war but they harness their fear.
