The Gurjha Brigade Association newsletter hinted that he plans to charm charming local women and says: & Atkinson understood the language remarkably quickly.

& # 39; This can be attributed to his language experience, who has previously studied both Arabic and Spanish, or to his urgent need to help local Nepalese & # 39; learn chat-up & # 39; lines. & # 39;

The letter quoted in The sun, added: & # 39; Learning Nepalese dance moves was a personal priority and Lt Atkinson was quick to create an impressive & # 39; uthyo basyo & # 39; (an up-down fast squat dance move). & # 39;
