    I was attached to a Ghurka rifle company for a spell, and they are absolutely fantastic people. Soooo professional. They are friendly and immensely proud to serve in the British Army. Just DONT MESS WITH THEM

    Years back I spent 6 months in Belize, UK troops at the time included the Ghurkas. We had no worries about anyone sneaking up on us through the jungle.
    I've never understood why they stay so loyal when successive Governments have dumped on them big time.

    Did a delivery to the Olympic site and the Gurkhas are doing the security there at the logistic areas,nobody and i mean nobody will get past them, so thorough its unbeliveable shame the prisons arn't guarded by the Gurkhas.
