It is said that, on the way to Waterloo, Gen. Arthur Wellesley

watch a unit of Highlanders march by singing, turned to an aide and said "I don't know what they do to the enemy, but by God! they terrify me."

Wonder what he'd make of these guys?

If you mess on Facebook, another angle at this address

Tell ya what, seeing it is scary, think about hearing that in the middle of the night. Excuse me, need to change into my brown trousers ,
I'm glad they're on our side.

"Very pretty, but can they fight?" See The Dirty Dozen for the reference. Want to have a real brown-trouser episode? End up facing Johnny Gurkha (all 4" 8" of him) smiling up at you with his kukri in hand - the one he just used to complete step #2 of making chicken stew. (#1 - catch a chicken. #2 - kill the chicken)

Hakas are meant to intimidate without actually having to fight. Then there are those that do not feel the need to show off - they just let their record speak for itself.

stay safe.
