British Gurkhas


What We Do

Our aim is to deliver Gurkha recruitment, provide local support to the soldiers and ex-servicemen and maintain Disaster Relief preparedness within resources, in order to support Firm Base activity in Nepal in accordance with UK Defence Strategy. 



In view of the restrictions that have been recently announced, and to support Nepal in its efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus, we are delaying Registration by 3 weeks and will publish a new call forward list to reflect the change in dates. We will keep the situation under constant review and provide regular updates if there are any further necessary changes.

Please remember to follow the guidelines, do not attend group training events, train on your own where possible, wear a mask at all times, maintain 2m distance from others and regularly wash your hands with soap. Keep well and stay safe.

कृपया नेपाल सरकारले जारी गरेको आदेश पालना गर्नुहोस्, समुहमा नभइ सकेसम्म एक्लै तालिम गर्नुहोस्, सधैं मास्क लगाउनुहोस, २ मीटरको सामाजिक दुरी सधैं कायाम राख्नु होस्, साबुन पानीले सधैं हात धुनुहोस । सधैं स्वस्थ अनि सुरक्षित रहनु होस ।
