Rifleman Tul Bahadur Pun V.C., Gurkha, Hero.

Sadly he died this April. But I didn't know, despite our somewhat poor treatment of the Gurkhas, that he was in fact already commemorated.

His name is here, on the Chindit memorial at the back of the MOD on the Embankment.

We got something right then.

Update 17/9/2011: here's his picture at Wikipedia: Photo of a hero

And the full article on him: His wiki page
