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
Every British Army Gurkha soldier will be very familiar with the fearsome ‘Doko’ – a gruelling physical challenge carrying 25kg of sand uphill for five miles in the Himalayas.
The run normally serves as a pivotal moment in the selection process of every aspiring Gurkha recruit.
However, this time it is soldiers from 10 Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment who have swapped the foothills of the Himalayas for the Queens Avenue playing fields in Aldershot to take on a challenge in the spirit of the Doko. Watch this video to find out more.
