About the Gurkhas
The Gurkhas have been part of the British Army since 1815, nearly 200 years. The name “Gurkha” comes from a town of Gorkha, a western region of Nepal. During the Second World War nearly 112,000 Gurkhas fought for the British.
Currently there are about 3,500 Gurkha soldiers serving in British Army. They serve in a variety of roles, mainly in the infantry but with significant numbers of engineers, logisticians and signals specialists.
During the two world wars 43,000 men lost their lives. The soldiers are still selected from young men living in the hills of Nepal – with more than 28,000 youths tackling the selection procedure for just over 200 places each year.
“Bravest of the brave, most generous of the generous, never had a country more faithful friends than you.”
Sir Ralph Turner MC, 3rd Queen Alexandra’s Own Gurkha Rifles, 1931
