About those Gurkhas...I would not want to call one of them "thick" unless it was from a very safe distance. And a high wall.

I used to live in Blandford Forum, where there were often fights in pubs and in the street between squaddies from Blandford Camp and local farm boys. I remember going into a pub once where a spectacular brawl had kicked off; tables over, glasses flying, and the floor awash with beer and blood.

In one serene corner were two very broad and muscular Gurkhas, quietly drinking. It was as if there was an invisible force-field around them.
