Op Gritrock Plaque


Op Gritrock Plaque

Operation Gritrock was the codename given to the British Military’s assistance in Sierra Leone during the 2014-15 Ebola crisis. Units from the Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment as part of 9 RLC took part in this operation and were deployed to Sierra Leone in 2014 to provide logistical support to British and African medical teams dealing with the situation, helping with the construction of six Ebola Treatment Centres. The World Health Organisation declared Sierra Leone free from Ebola in November 2015. In 2018 members of the QOGLR team visited the Gurkha Museum and presented this wooden carved plaque, commemorating their involvement.
