Rifleman Pawan Gurung, The Royal Gurkha Rifles – Chief of the General Staff Commendation

Rifleman Pawan Gurung, The Royal Gurkha Rifles has received a Chief of the General Staff Commendation. His performance throughout 2022 has been nothing short of excellent. His commitment has been unswerving and his conduct truly inspirational in Training Support Division (TSD).

He stepped up to ACPO (a LCpl position) during mortar live firing. Here he demonstrated knowledge of the Data Computer (Mortar) to JNCO level. Beyond this, he has remained heavily committed at the Infantry Battle School (IBS) as an AAPTI, Training Support Department (TSD) storeman, and assistant commander of the COVID-19 isolation facility. Rifleman Pawan has been a force multiplier in TSD.

With his strong grasp of spoken and written English, Rifleman Pawan is key to leading the routine temple services and ritual services in TSD. His presentations on spiritual context are also well researched. He simply is outstanding in this context and performing beyond his rank. This testifies his will to go the extra mile when required.

Rifleman Pawan is a perfect ambassador for The Royal Gurkha Rifles. He organised a charity event to support the people of Sindupalchowk in Nepal, who were severely affected by the monsoon flood. With his initiative and generous contribution, £1030 was raised and handed over to the Nepal Red Cross Society. Rifleman Pawan also completed a gruelling 100km gruelling run Trail Walker 21 representing IBS. The Brecon to Cardiff run (70km) event demonstrated his desire and commitment, made more impressive by the arduous weather he faced. Rifleman Pawan has achieved these feats by devoting his personal time to organisation and training. Rifleman Pawan has been a true inspiration to his generation of Gurkhas.
