The Gurkhas in the Falklands
We were delighted when we were approached by Mike last week offering to do a talk on his time in the Falklands. Mike was the Operations and Training Officer of the 1st Battalion, 7th Duke of Edinburgh’s Own Gurkha Rifles and author of ‘With the Gurkhas in the Falklands – a War Journal.’
Mike’s detailed talk gave his audience a little bit of history about the Gurkhas, the training and preparation during their voyage south, the landing at San Carlos and the battles for Tumbledown and William.
