The Red-Haired Gurkhas
The soldiers say the wandering spirit that terrorises them is that of a headless soldier executed by the Japanese. A captain by rank. How could they tell? By his epaulette and his cypress green uniform. Rather World War 2. But why does it appear when the Gurkha remains are being exhumed? A ghost story told from the point of view of a nine-year old child, the daughter of an army captain, whose family resides at a very old military camp.
