    Gruesome end for a bullet-proof rebel of the Empire
    Three days after we left the rebels tried to rush this post, but were met by a heavy rifle fire followed by a charge and fled leaving some of their number dead on the field, including their 'invulnerable' leader Jho Jungnat.

    "This worthy had given out that no bullets of the infidels could touch him. To convince the populace of the error his dead body was hung up by the feet in the market place for all to see (and smell)."

    This was just one of a succession of troubles encountered by the regiment.

    Arthur Garrett's handwritten diary covers the period from October 29, 1914, when the 4th Battalion of the King's Shropshire Light Infantry left England, to their return on July 29, 1917, when, shockingly, despite being abroad for nearly three years, they were sent straight to the trenches of France without any home leave.

    Better known as Tok Janggut today and, of course, a freedom fighter!

    No problem. With the KSLI's involvement it couldn't have been anyone else!
