The Gurkhas began as an Indian regiment in the British Indian army. Now a permanent fixture in the British military, the only regiment to recruit from outside the UK and the Commonwealth. The Gurkhas originate from Nepal and are adored in Britain. The regiment has a fearsome reputation and count a disproportionate number of Victoria cross winners amongst their number.

We will be donating the proceeds of sale to the Gurkha welfare trust.
