Integral to the Indian Army, the Gorkhas are probably the most feared and bravest soldiers on the face of the earth. Here are some of the most interesting facts about the Gorkha Regiments and its valiant soldiers:
He was so confident of their loyalty that he formed them into a battalion under Lieutenant Ross. The Gorkha Regiment was then known as the Nasiri regiment.
During their struggle in defending Bilafond La, the 3/4 GR had 13 killed and 23 wounded soldiers.
The Gorkhas are one of the most fearless and worthy warriors across the globe. This is proven by this quote of Lt. Manoj Kumar Pandey:
“If death strikes before I prove my blood, I promise, I will kill death.”
