At a lunch held during The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment’s tour of Public Duties at Buckingham Palace and other London Palaces, the medals of Sgt Ram Krishna Gurung (original member of the Gurkha Army Service Corps when formed in 1958) were presented to The Gurkha Museum. WO2 Lalkaji handed over the medals to the Director in the presence of Major Nick Heppenstall, (Queen’s Guard Commander), Major General Angus Fay (Colonel of the Regiment) and other Queen’s Guard Officers and Warrant Officers. The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment will continue to mount guard at the London Palaces until 12 July.s.
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.
