28 Transport Squadron is part of 10 The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment and is now, with its large Nepalese contingent, on continental roads for the first time.
They are confident but had to learn fast but are confident at the wheels of their vehicles. To get there more than 100 personnel have driven 45 trucks from their Aldershot base. With a Channel ferry crossing the nearly 500-mile journey has taken three days.
For 90% of the squadron driving on the continent and on the right-hand side of the road is a new experience.
