I'm actually reading Defeat into Victory now. Got a brand new copy from abebooks, 17 quid with postage from the States.

But I do think you will need a little more basic information on the Battalion.

Try asking on the forum on here

Someone might be able to help you, but you might need to provide quite a bit more information as there were 10ish Gurkha regiments and I have no idea how many battalions active at one point or another in Burma.
