I have a gurkha knife shield that my poppa got while he was in the Malayan War.
My Poppa was in the NZ Army in the early 1960s. Poppa’s name was Dudley, he was in the Malayan War. Malaya is a small country in central Asia.
The shield is about forty four years old. It is special because it reminds me of my Poppa. It used to belong to him.
