Aldershot Gurkhas

Published by Josh Kerr at 6:17pm 24th April 2019.

Aldershot’s Gurkhas are to have the honour of guarding Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Some 120 Gurkha soldiers from 10 The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment, usually based at Gale Barracks in Aldershot, have been busy on the parade square learning the intricate drill movements and positioning.

For eight weeks through the height of London’s tourist season they will be performing the world-famous Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace in front of audiences of up to 10,000.

They will also be on duty at the royal residencies of St James’s Palace and Windsor Castle as well as the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London.

Weeks of training are beginning to come to a close ahead of their post beginning on 5 May.
