Reader’s Comment: Who jumps without a parachute? Gurkhas


In response to Lefty Lunacy: Bid for black faces leaves Army red-faced, Paul Weston wrote:

A fair few years ago, Gurkhas on the parade ground were asked to volunteer for an air drop somewhere or other. Only two men stepped forward.

The Regimental Sergeant Major was shocked: where is the famed Gurkha bravery he asked? Something then dawned on him and he added that of course they would have parachutes….all the men then stepped forward.
