Gurkhas to help in Ebola fight

21st October 2014

Gurkhas have a reputation for being able to go unseen by the enemy, but now they are set to face a deadly enemy they wont be able to see themselves.

10 QOGLR are deploying to Sierra Leone on Operation Gritrock as part of the efforts to fight the Ebola outbreak.

29 soldiers boarded a plane at Brize Norton in the early hours this morning headed to the African nation, where they will help set up a training camp to teach health workers how to deal with the outbreak.They will be staying at Benguema Camp in Kerry Town, 35 km east of capital Freetown. Best of luck lads and take care.
