Gurkha Pass Off Parade

Oct 14, 2014, 12:23 PM, Richmondshire District, North Yorkshire, England

Gurkha Company in Catterick Garrison has seen over 100 recruits pass out at a parade in Helles Barracks.

Over 8000 individuals applied to join the British Army. Those numbers were filtered down with a series of selection tests in Nepal. The remaining candidates arrived in North Yorkshire at the start of the year to begin their military & cultural instruction.

The ceremony marked the end of phase one instruction at the Infantry Training Centre.
