About the Author
The Gurkha Museum has something to interest people of all ages and is suitable for a family outing. The Museum experience tells the story of nearly 200 years of Gurkha service to the British Crown. The peace treaty of the Anglo-Nepal War, based on the mutual respect, rather than hostility, led to the enlistment in 1815 of Nepalese into the Army of the Honourable East India Company that has endured to this day. Nepal is also Britain s oldest ally in Asia. The visitor experience not only covers battles and campaigns, but culture, religion, and the social structure of these brave warriors. Besides tableaux, dioramas, showcases and panels, it has visual and audio descriptions of the history of Gurkha Regiments, recruiting of soldiers in Nepal as well as the Gurkha in his homeland. The Museum is a memorial to Gurkha service to the Crown from 1815 to the present day. For more information please visit: www.thegurkhamuseum.co.uk
