Last week the Defence Logistic Trust, in addition to making a colossal £3m donation to the Royal Logistic Corps, presented the Gurkha Welfare Trust with an incredible £300,000 donation.

This most generous of gifts will change the lives of many of our ex-Gurkhas and their countrymen by supporting vital infrastructure projects, including schools, in Nepal delivered under the Gurkha Welfare Scheme.

To honour this occasion, The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment hosted a capability demonstration and lunch at our home in Gale Barracks. Colonel Brigade of Gurkhas was also present as a trustee of the Gurkha Welfare Trust.

Those serving in the Brigade of Gurkhas and The Royal Logistic Corps, and the Gurkha Welfare Trust, would like to pay tribute to the staff of the Defence Logistic Trust.



We thank them for the vision, passion and dedication they have not only shown to the people of Nepal but also to 1,000’s of soldiers of our Corps who have benefited for nearly 3 decades from their Vocational scheme.


Jai Defence Logistic Trust!
