My last unit being 10 Regt i heard about this a few yrs ago. Good lads the Gurkhas..i covered rear party Admin SNCO during Telic and it was a bit daunting having 20 odd newly arrived Gurkhas, not much English spoken, standing in front of you and 10 British soldiers who would be late, sick etc...(probably why they didnt go!). Always polite and always on time...nevermind i thought, give it a few months and they will be like us....well in fact they werent and its good news to have a Regt for themselves now. I have to say 10 Regt always did have "the Gurkha factor" though, which sometimes did go against you! Anyone who served there will know!!
