The handmade wooden Gurkha regiment plaque is one of the latest additions by
Nepalese Khukuri House Pvt. Ltd. It is imitation version of the original ones find only in
official army Units and the Gurkha Museum in the UK. The Royal Gurkha Rifles is a
regiment of the British Army, forming part of the Brigade of Gurkhas. It is unique in that
it recruits Gurkhas from Nepal, which is a nation independent of the United Kingdom and
not a member of the Commonwealth. The regiment was formed in 1994 from the
amalgamation of the four separate Gurkha regiments in the British Army. The two
battalions of the RGR are formed as light role infantry; they are not equipped with
either armored or wheeled vehicles. One battalion is based at Shorncliffe, near Folkston
in Kent as part of 52 Infantry Brigade, and is available for deployment to most areas in
Europe and Africa. The other is based at the British garrison in Brunei as part of Britain's
commitment to maintaining a military presence in Asia. The two battalions rotate in each
role, usually for three years at a time.
All the eight plaques are available at same price.
