Our latest Gurkhas to join the Brigade came to Catterick at the start of 2016. They have now reached a first milestone with the ‘Passing Off The Square’ parade which sees them being assessed on their overall performance, standard of dress, turnout and individual drill.
If they pass the assessment, they leave the parade ground with new privileges.
They’ll be granted ‘messing permissions’, which means cooking huge pans of Gurkha curry on fires outside.
You can see footage of the event on the Forces TV site here.
