British Gurkhas Intake 2/81 (UK)
This is a new addition to the Website. The web album has been removed in favour of the Photo Galleries. Numberi photos of both past and present have been posted for our viewing pleasure and to reminiscse bygone days. Efforts have been made to give viewers more information regarding the posted photographs. However, if you have additional information or find the captions to be inaccurate or misleading then please contact me and I shall have them corrected. I would be grateful if you could pass me similar photos (electronic or paper), I will scan them, post them on our web site and return the originals back to you. One piece of advice; viewers may get a feeling that I am getting a bit carried here and posting too many snapshots of me and my family. However, that cannot be further away from the truth as I do not have any photos other than what I have at home. Therefore, you will have to put up with photos on this site features my wrinkly mug. However, the idea is, once I start receiving more photos from you, you will start seeing less of me and more of you. Lets get on with it, roll back the clock, put your feet up and enjoy the magic moments:
