The Gurkhas have been part of the British army for almost 200 years and more than 45,000 have died in British uniform. To date it has won 26 Victoria Crosses - 13 by Gurkhas and 13 by British Officers. This short chronicle is of necessity brief and factual. It cannot adequately portray the spirit and the character of the Gurkha soldier, nor can it reflect the 'esprit de corps' and the bond of comradeship and mutual respect which bind together the British and Gurkha Officers and men of the Brigade. Around 3,500 currently serve in the Army, including in the Sultanate of Brunei and Afghanistan.
