Our Vice Patron Lord Bramall, 1923 – 2019
We would like to extend our condolences to the family of our Vice Patron Field Marshal Lord Bramall. An instrumental figure in The Gurkha Welfare Trust’s history we were saddened to hear of his passing.
Life in the birthplace of the Gurkhas
Amrit Bahadur Thapa lives with his only son in the Gorkha district of Nepal, birthplace of the Gurkhas. The World War Two veteran’s life offers a glimpse of the typical existence for many of the elderly Gurkha pensioners we support.
