Who We Are
The Gurkha Museum at Winchester tells the moving and unique story of Gurkha service to the British Crown and its people for 200 years. Gurkha graves are spread across the face of the earth in nearly every country in which Britain has fought – silent testament to Gurkha loyalty and courage.
At the Gurkha Museum you will find a fitting tribute to the ‘bravest of the brave most generous of the generous...’ As the Gurkha motto tells
