Kukri's in action in Vietnam.
« on: December 31, 2010, 09:58:03 AM »

18th November 1944 : A Gurkha unit set out for Long Kien, south of Saigon, to rescue French hosates held there ( by the Viet Minh ). The force was not strong enough to overcome the enemy en route, so on the 22nd a stronger force was dispatched. Jap deserters ( the Jap's where fighting as allies with the Brit's ) were seen leading some Viet Minh groups. According to the Gurkha platoon commander, at one point the Gurkha's where held up by determined Viet Minh force in an old French Fort. The Gurkha's brought up a bazooka and blew in the doors, then without hesitation drew their kukri's and charged the postion, putting 80 of the Viet Minh to the knife. No hostages where recovered. It is likely that they had already been killed by the Vietnamese.
