Publisher:A Leo Cooper Book
Size:160 x 230 x 12 mm
This book covers the period 1948-82, taking the reader from turbulence brought about the granting of independence to India in 1947, through the long years of the Malayan emergency, confrontation in Borneo, the periodic overspills into Hong Kong of communist China's internal upheavals, to Belize and peacetime soldering in Britain and Brunei. Although these events are described mainly through the eyes of the Regiment , the book gives a broad account of the background and course of the campaigns in which the 6th queen Elizabeth's Own Gurkha Rifle have taken part.
