Colonel Brigade of Gurkhas (Colonel J Robinson) visited the Brigade Band and the Pipes & Drums from across the Brigade during their concentration programme held in Sir John Moore Barracks, Shorncliffe, Kent.

This concentration allows the Brigade to bring the pipes and drums up to speed in time for the major events during Brigade week this year the first week in July. These events will include a Sounding Retreat at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and then the Brigade Bhela in Aldershot.
