The Gurkha Brigade Association represents all the Regimental Associations of Britain’s Brigade of Gurkhas. Veterans and serving, and all ranks, anyone who has served with the Brigade of Gurkhas is a member. Our role is to foster comradeship and welfare, to preserve the heritage and history of the Brigade of Gurkhas and to sponsor and support Association or Brigade events. We work very closely with Headquarters the Brigade of Gurkhas, the Gurkha Welfare Trust and the Gurkha Museum, for the benefit of our soldiers and ex-servicemen. We provide information on relevant news and events, in UK and abroad, as well as help and advice for those starting a second career outside the Brigade
The Museum tells the story of over 200 years of Gurkha service to the British Crown, beginning in 1814.
The visitor experience not only covers battles and campaigns, but the culture, religion and social structure of these brave warriors.

Beside tableaux, dioramas, showcases and panels, it has visual and voice descriptions of the history of Gurkha Regiments, recruiting of soldiers in Nepal as well as the culture of the Gurkha in his homeland.
There is also a display commemorating the winners of 26 Victoria Crosses.
