The Gurkha Brigade Association represents all the Regimental Associations of Britain’s Brigade of Gurkhas. Veterans and serving, and all ranks, anyone who has served with the Brigade of Gurkhas is a member. Our role is to foster comradeship and welfare, to preserve the heritage and history of the Brigade of Gurkhas and to sponsor and support Association or Brigade events. We work very closely with Headquarters the Brigade of Gurkhas, the Gurkha Welfare Trust and the Gurkha Museum, for the benefit of our soldiers and ex-servicemen. We provide information on relevant news and events, in UK and abroad, as well as help and advice for those starting a second career outside the Brigade
You can learn how to play the bagpipes in the British Army by attending the prestigious training courses run by The Army School of Bagpipe Music based in Edinburgh.
On the last course we had three Gurkhas attending from The Royal Gurkha Rifles (RGR) and they are now ready to take up their place in their units as pipers and also support The Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas at various high profile events around the world.
It is no easy task to learn to play the bagpipes and theses young Gurkhas have done extremely well. The Army School of Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming Class 3 and Class 2 Pass off parade took place at Redford Cavalry Barrack on 11th March 2020.
