Gurkha Trainees visit the House of Commons

On Monday 13 June 22, some of our Gurkha Recruit Intake 22, who are part way through their training in Catterick, visited the House of Commons as part of an educational visit.

The trip was to help them learn about how UK Parliament functions.

Sir Lindsay Hoyle, the 158th Speaker of the UK House of Commons, warmly welcomed them and talked about how British Politics works in the House and for the people.

This is an annual training visit which makes up several cultural and educational trips as part of the Gurkhas training to help them become part of the British Army on completion of their Infantry Soldier and Gurkha training which takes place in Catterick, North Yorkshire at the Infantry Training Centre Catterick.

You can follow their training story on our dedicated blog page.
