Face Like A Chicken's Backside

An Unconventional Soldier in South East Asia, 1948-1971


J P Cross had many unusual experiences in his long Gurkha career: in 1945, for example, he was attached to a Japanese battalion in Indochina which was fighting for the British against the Viet Minh, and the only photograph taken of this Japanese unit finally laying down its weapons appears in this book. Later, he just managed to resolve a potentially deadly dispute between an offended Gurkha and a visiting South Vietnamese traineee at the British Army's Jungle Warfare School (JWS). His memoirs offer insight into the realities of jungle warfare in Southeast Asia. Cross explains how he fought Malayan guerrillas, commanded the Sarawak and Sabah Border Scouts in Borneo, and was Commandant of the JWS.
