Start of Training for This Year's Gurkha Recruits

Competition to serve as a Gurkha in the British Army is fierce.


Each year more than 11,000 Nepali men apply to join the ranks but only 170 make it through.


This year’s recruits have only been in the UK since January but their training has already begun.


They must complete a 37 week course, longer than the standard 23
weeks other budding soldiers must go through as it includes extra
language tuition.
