Along with the Gurkha Brigade Association website the intent is too bring you news about the Brigade of Gurkhas and their activities from around the world via this section of the British Army website.
On Thursday 9th February the 2017 Attestation Parade took place at British Gurkhas Pokhara. 270 new recruits where selected through the long and arduous annual Gurkha recruit selection process.
The Brigade of Gurkhas are back in training for Mount Everest, and, acts of God aside, the team is in a strong position to put the first serving Gurkha on the summit.
The team, largely unchanged from Gurkha 200 Everest (G200E), has built on the foundations laid in the run up to the 2015 expedition. They have conducted training in the French Alps, Wales and most recently in Scotland.
13 players and 3 coaches from the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Airforce were selected to represent the UK Armed Forces Judo Association (UKAFJA) on tour in Japan from 12th – 27th November 2016. The event included participation of Gurkha Soldiers from the Queen's Gurkha Signals.
