At Picton Barracks, Princess Anne, Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Corps of Signals, welcomed the Squadron, which recently reformed as part of 3rd Division Signal Regiment after originally being disbanded in 2003.
Corporal Shem Limbu, from 249 Gurkha Signal Squadron, said he felt “lucky” to meet the royal. “It was a great experience,” he said.
This reformation means the Queens Gurkha signals has increased from four to five squadrons.
Major James Corns, Officer Commanding 249 Gurkha Signal Squadron said the Gurkhas are “the bravest of the brave. They’re tenacious, they’re loyal and brave. They’re just so proactive that it causes everyone to raise their game when working alongside them. I’m very proud to command Gurkha soldiers.”
