Post Confrontation VC holder 
I was trawling the web and found this.For those so called 'civil' servants and whitehall backside polishers who think confrontation was some little send a gunboat police action not worthy of an award from the Malaysian Government. This was just one of many actions that took place in jungle.Once again our countrys highest bravery award goes to one of the worlds best fighting men.But if he wears a PJM will he upset HM ?

Rambahadur Limbu (VC, MVO) is a Nepalese recipient of the Victoria Cross, the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces.


He was approx. 26 years old, and a Lance-Corporal in the 2nd Bn., 10th Princess Mary's Own Gurkha Rifles, British Army during the Indonesian Confrontation when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC.

On 21 November 1965 in Sarawak, Borneo, Lance-Corporal Rambahadur Limbu was in an advance party of 16 Gurkhas when they encountered about 30 Indonesians holding a position on the top of a jungle-covered hill. The lance-corporal went forward with two men, but when they were only 10 yards from the machine-gun, the sentry opened fire, whereupon the NCO rushed forward and killed him with a grenade. The enemy then opened fire on the small party wounding the two men with the lance-corporal who, under heavy fire, made two journeys into the open to drag his comrades to safety.
He is a living recipient. He later achieved the rank of Hon. Captain.
