The Brigade of Gurkhas issued a fine Commemorative Medal to celebrate 200 years of Gurkha history back in 2015. Created by Alfred Pain FRSA, BA Hons, himself a former Gurkha Officer and a Member of the Contemporary British Silversmiths. The Medal bears a Nepali inscription “Gun, Khun, Nun” (because of quality of military heritage, blood spilled and salt [oath]) chosen by the legendary Col J P Cross summing up Gurkha Service to the Crown over 200 years. The 57 mm Medal, cast in solid bronze, has been produced by Bigbury Mint in Devon who pride themselves on high quality workmanship with excellent service.
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.
