This sweeping pictorial history of the Royal Gurkha Rifles is an introduction to the regiment, its operations, and its deployments at home. Supported by a wealth of photographs chronicling the last quarter of a century in service to the Crown, Gurkha: 25 Years of the Royal Gurkha Rifles commemorates the twenty-fifth anniversary of the regiment.
Brief histories of deployments and special interest sections, including recruiting, training, sport, religious festivals, and of course, the kukri are included. Lists of officers, soldiers, honours, and awards--including The Roll of Honour and Battle Honours (and its antecedent regiments)--are amongst the detail amassed in this special edition. This stunning celebration of the Royal Gurkha Rifles is accompanied by more than five hundred illustrations and a foreword by His Royal Highness Prince Charles.
