In the times of man power shortages and committment problems to the Army, why not increase the Brigade of Gurkhas? Approximately 28,000 men attempt Gurkha selection in Nepal every year for a measly 200 places. Having served with Gurkha's on several tours, i find them to be loyal, dedicated and damned hard working. The very epitomy of how a soldier should be. If we had another Brigade we would be a hell of lot better off. "Jai Mahakali, Ayo Gorkhali!" ("Glory be to the Goddess of War, here come the Gorkhas!"
