The Governor-General of Australia, General Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC, was invited to inspect the men from A Company 1RGR on Monday 18th May.

He had glowing words of praise for the men stating that they had an “Immaculate turn out, no less than I would expect from such outstanding soldiers.”

He went on to talk about his history with the Gurkhas and commended them on 200 years of Gurkha heritage: “I have had the fortune to command Gurkhas a number of times, always to my considerable advantage. It is a pleasure to welcome you to Australia in this your remarkable 200th year of service. I applaud the work of the Gurkha Welfare Foundation and the considerable efforts of the Gurkha Welfare Trust in Nepal.”
