Last week the 340 new Gurkhas selected in Nepal to join the Brigade of Gurkhas arrived in the UK to commence their Infantry training in Catterick.
We will be following their journey on our website so do come over and bookmark our website.
Every year thousands of young Nepalis spend large sums of money on attending training academies. These academies are not supported by the British Army in anyway.
Some of these training academies have underlying corruption and some even practice unsafe training, risking the health of potential recruits.
The recruiting process is entirely free for all eligible personnel that wish to join the Gurkhas. All the selection information is published on the British Army website and anyone can prepare for the process at home, without spending a single rupee.
Gurkha recruiting remains to be free, fair and transparent.
