We present a world volume action for the gravitational wave and the (bosonic) N = 1 Heterotic Kaluza-Klein monopole solution. In the construction of the action we make use of the fact that the wave and the Kaluza-Klein monopole are T-dual to the fundamental string and the solitonic five-brane, and we present an alternative way to derive the T-duality rules for non-string-like objects.
