Gurkha Memorial Rededicated to celebrate 200 years

Gurkha Memorial Rededicated to celebrate 200 years

The Gurkha Memorial in Whitehall has been refurbished and the campaign plaques updated to celebrate 200 years of Gurkha involvement in the British Army.

The work was supervised by Chris Rainsford who was present at the rededication of the statue. He reports that the magnificent ceremony was carried out under the cloud of the all too recent tragedy in Nepal and that the marching soldiers received a huge cheer as they appeared within sight of the Memorial.
