The images of the Titles, Badge and Battle Honours are from Britain´s Gurkhas (2009) by Brigadier Christopher Bullock and the other images from SirKukri if nothing else is mentioned.

The numbering system of the Gurkha units started in 1861 based on the Regiments loyalty during the Indian Mutiny, with only 12 of 74 regular regiments of the Bengal Native Infantry not mutining. 


Following India´s Independence on 15 August 1947 the Gurkha regiments were divided between Great Britain and India.


1 GR - 3 GR - 4 GR - 5 GR -8 GR - 9 GR stayed with the Republic of India.

2 GR - 6 GR - 7 GR - 10 GR went with Great Britain (United Kingdom).


In 1950 the Indian Army adopted "Gorkha" as a official spelling for their regiments. 


In 1994 the 2 GR - 6 GR - 7 GR - 10 GR amalgamated to form the Royal Gurkha Rifles (RGR). 



It has always fascinated me that the Kukri/Khukuri is used in the Regimental Badge/Insignia of all various Gurkha/Gorkha units, a natural symbol of the Gurkha/Gorkha soldier and regiment.

Pre 1947 several Regiments had Gurkha battalions, for example the Jammu & Kashmir Rifles, Eastern Frontier Rifles and others. Gurkhas also served in various State Forces of the many Maharajas.

In Burma, the Burma Military Police along with other regiments recruited Gurkhas as well.
