I've read a lot of attempts by writers trying to sum up the typical jungle patrol by distilling the common features of the scores in which they took part. This is one of the best. It's written by Major 'Brunny' Short of 1/6th Gurkha Rifles, at one stage 2 i/c of the battalion, and is extracted from The Happy Warriors by Brigadier A. E. C.Bredin D.S.O., M.C. (pp. 203-208).
