    I have been to Limeking sir. I appreciate the difficulty of the terrain despite all the infrastructure development that has taken place now. I can only imagine how difficult it would have been for you to fight the enemy in those terrains with no connectivity and road infrastructure. May you rest in peace sir. Amen.

    I remember My brother Late capt BB Ghosh of 2/8 GR (killed in 1962 along with him) worshipped Col. Taylor as his guru.
    Commanding Officer such as Col Taylor is very rare. May the departed soul rest in peace.
    My regards to his family
