Headquarters Brigade of Gurkhas plants a tree for The Queen’s Green Canopy

The Brigade of Gurkhas formally launched support to The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) initiative on the 29th of January with a tree planting event at the Headquarters of The Brigade of Gurkhas.

Members of the headquarters and their families were joined by guests from the wider serving Brigade, the Gurkha Welfare Trust, the Gurkha Museum and the Gurkha Brigade Association. The QGC is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee.” With a focus on planting sustainably, the QGC will encourage planting of trees to create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the Nation, which will benefit future generations.

The principal guest was Lieutenant General Richard Wardlaw OBE, Colonel Commandant of The Brigade of Gurkhas. The location of the oak tree planting has special significance as it has been placed next to two trees that commemorate Her Majesty The Queen’s Silver and Golden Jubilees.

Beyond the launch event all six Gurkha cap badges from across the Brigade of Gurkhas will be hosting their own events and activities in support of The Queens Green Canopy project; bringing the Gurkha family together in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
