I have been pushing awareness of the recent issue with Tullbahadur Pun, the VC winning Gurkha to some soap dodging students. The responce has been reasonable but i was however asked this: "Just to play devil's advocate for a moment, - and this is in no way to demean their outstanding contributions to our armed forces - but why single out the Gurkhas for special treatment ? What about the 2.5 million Indians who served in the British Indian Army during WWII ? They were active in many combat zones, from Burma to the Western desert, Europe and Italy, and 30 VCs were awarded to Indian soldiers during the war." I was going to jump in and say that its because we still activley recruit them to work alongside our own armed forces. We have paid tribute to all the people who assisted us in various conflicts, however they dont continue to serve our country. Is this right and what else should i add? I want to get them magey fookers on the right side for once in thier lives.
