David Morgan – The Falklands War – 37 years on
This is the second time that Brigadier David Morgan has spoken at the Museum about the Falklands War, with special emphasis on the part played by his Battalion, the 1/7th DEO Gurkha Rifles. Having been down to the South Atlantic no less than three times since the war, most recently to witness the opening of a Gurkha Commemoration Stone in East Falkland, he will include his retrospective and controversial thoughts over the past 37 years which will give a different slant on the employment of Gurkhas in that conflict. No doubt the serious bits will be mixed, as before, with occasional and often amusing anecdotes.
Tickets are priced at £35 per head (£32 for Museum Friends) and includes tea and coffee on arrival, the lecture and a two course curry lunch in the Gallery. Please call 01962 842832 ext 6 or email email@example.com to book.
Following the latest Government guidance regarding COVID-19 and careful consideration of the current situation, The Gurkha Museum has decided to close its doors to the public in the interest of visitor and staff safety, effective immediately.
The Museum will remain closed until further notice but will continue to operate behind the scenes with reduced staff on call to answer queries during this time. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will issue updates through our website and social media channels as soon as we become aware of further changes to our operations.
May we thank our Visitors, Friends and Supporters for their understanding and support through this difficult period.
