G200 SITREP 1
In 2015, Gurkhas will have served in the British Army for 200 years. This is a significant achievement, which is characterised by excellence and sacrifice, is worthy of celebration. But as well as providing an opportunity for this, the 200th Anniversary will also provide a platform from which we will be able to reinforce the critical role that Gurkhas continue to play in the British Army’s Order of Battle and to raise additional support for the outstanding work done by the Gurkha Welfare Trust (GWT). With this in mind, it has been agreed that the formal aim of the 200th Anniversary - which we are calling Gurkha 200, or G200 for short - should be:
“To mark 200 years of Gurkha service to the Crown in a series of activities that enhance the Brigade's reputation, both nationally and internationally, in order to contribute to the maintenance of the Brigade of Gurkhas in the Army's order of Battle and to enhance support for the GWT."
