Gurkha Shorts


Back to the Originals. Of all the statues along Whitehall in London (technically, the heart of the British Empire), my favorite is the sturdy Gurkha Soldier. He stands on permanent guard outside the Ministry of Defense, rifle in hand, hat at a jaunty angle. “Bravest of the brave,” reads the memorial inscription, and it’s true; Gurkha regiments in service to Britain have won a remarkable 26 Victoria Crosses for courage under fire. I can’t promise that stepping into these shorts will make a person more intrepid, but the way they look is a nudge in the right direction.
