MY WAR By Gurkha Tul Bahadur Pun; EXCLUSIVE The hero that Britain didn’t want.

CONFRONTED by four Japanese soldiers and with his comrades lying dead around him, there could not have been a worse moment for Tul Bahadur Pun to run out of bullets.

The young Gurkha frantically scrabbled for a grenade which he flung into the enemy trench, killing his assailants, before diving for cover as the ground was raked by machine-gun fire.
