  • Description

    Preparing for a visit by the King of Nepal is this Gurkha Company at the UK School of Infantry at Warminster. For the first time, the Gurkhas are to become part of the School's demonstration battalion.

    As well as the demonstration before the king of Nepal next October, the Gurkhas will participate in the London Royal Military Tournament in June, at Edinburg Tattoo and the launching of HMS Gurkha the same month.

    Gurkhas formed at the time of Waterloo come mainly from the mountains of Nepal. A Gurkha military and pipe band will arrive in the UK shortly and join their compatriots at Warminister for the Royal visit.
