"Such exploits by Colonel Bahadur Gambarsing (Chetri), whom at Chanda (and then a private), showed the Gurkhas true worth. During the battle he
single-handedly captured three small artillery pieces. The last artillery piece was desperately defended by the mutineers, and they counter attacked
Gambarsing with Talwar sword and Bayonet, who only armed with a Kukri, took them on, cutting down seven of the enemy
Defending the piece of artillery, he lost some of his fingers and almost had his left hand cut off, during this action he received 23 wounds in total,
including some large cuts on his head from sword strikes, the scars of which remained with him for the rest of his life."
