Rifleman Lachhiman Gurung took on a force of 200 Japanese soldiers at Burma, during the second world war. He threw the Japanese grenades back at them, even after one exploded in his hand. He waited in his trench for the soldiers to advance and shot at them at point blank range. In the morning, there were 31 dead Japanese soldiers around his trench. He was awarded the Victoria Cross award for gallantry.
