Dr Chalise was accompanied by the Nepalese Military Attache, Colonel Bishwanath Ghimire and the Deputy Chief of Mission, Mr Tej Bahadur Chhetri. Senior representatives from Gurkha Units, including the Hindu and Buddhist Religious Teachers, were also present.
Colonel Brigade of Gurkhas, Colonel James Robinson, highlighted the significance of the historical relationship between Great Britain and Nepal in the context of the Brigade of Gurkhas and acknowledged the important contribution the Nepalese Embassy has made to support the settlement and integration of ex-Gurkha communities in the United Kingdom.
