Additional Information

The Gurkha regiments in the British Army are among the world's finest infantrymen. Recruited in the kingdom of Nepal since 1819, they have served the kings and queens of Britain with loyalty and incredible bravery. Their battle cry "Here comes the Gurkhas!" has caused enemy soldiers to flee the battlefield and has given the Gurkha a combat potential far greater than his numbers. The Gurkha soldier has fought beside his British brothers in arms in the Indian Mutiny, in France and Mesopotamia during World War I, and in all theaters during World War II. They have fought as well in Britain's countless small wars including the Northwest Frontier of India, Malaya, Borneo, and in 1982 the Falkland Islands. After reading and finding outwho the Gurkhas are and where they come from; their customs, character and their history as soldiers, then perhaps you will understand why they are among the world's best soldiers.
