With the Gurkhas in the Falklands
by Mike Seear

>>>DOWNLOAD BOOK With the Gurkhas in the Falklands

Regarded by many as the world's finest infantry soldiers, the Gurkhas' fierce reputation for battlefield aggression and stealth combined with the adroit use of their famed kukri knife, injected great fear into the occupying Argentine troops on the Falkland Islands in 1982. As the British Task Force's largest unit, the 711-strong 1st Battalion, 7th Duke of Edinburgh's Own Gurkha Rifles embarked on board the Cunard liner RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 on 12 May to depart from Southampton to the South Atlantic with the remainder of 5 Infantry Brigade. But even before their departure, the Gurkhas' reputation had been working overtime, and was already causing an increasingly debilitating psychological concern amongst their 'dush' (enemy). The Argentine media spun a plethora of totally untrue stories about these Nepalese troops during the next few weeks. Even today the latter's perceived 'bestial' reputation continues to live a life of its own in Argentina. As a result, the Gurkhas' operations were to be affected profoundly when, after twenty days at sea, they landed at San Carlos, East Falkland to participate in the land campaign's final fourteen days.Written by one of their British officers, this book conveys the Gurkhas' impressive professionalism as well as the personal and emotional aspects of his deployment on Operation Corporate. It provides a unique insight into a legendary fighting force surrounded by mystique and which exercised an uncompromising Regimental 'kaida' (the way things are done). This is both a serious and light-hearted account of the Gurkhas' intensive training for war on land and at sea, transition to operations, preparations for battle, involvement in combat, and the cessation of hostilities' aftermath.

Soldier reaches into rucksack and places severed head on tableDuring World War I (19141918), more than 200,000 Gurkhas served in the British Army, suffering approximately 20,000 casualties, and receiving almost 2,000 gallantry awards.[19] The number of Gurkha battalions was increased to thirty-three, and Gurkha units were placed at the disposal of the British high command by the Gurkha government for service on all fronts30 September 2008In what is seen as a form of numismatic propaganda, Alejandro Vanoli, president of the Central Bank of Argentina announced a redesign of their 50 peso note to include the Falkland Islands

From this beachhead the British infantry advanced southward to capture the settlements of Darwin and Goose Green before turning towards Port StanleyFollowing the end of the war, the Gurkhas were returned to India and during the inter-war years, they were largely kept away from the internal strife and urban conflicts of the sub-continent, instead being employed largely on the frontiers and in the hills where fiercely independent tribesmen were a constant source of troubles.[25] As such, between the World Wars, the Gurkha regiments fought in the Third Afghan War in 1919 and then participated in numerous campaigns on the North-West Frontier, mainly in Waziristan, where they were employed as garrison troops defending the frontier, keeping the peace amongst the local populace and engaging with the lawless and often openly hostile Pathan tribesmenHe understood Argentine officers simply collected the containers after each dropFour of the Argentines raised their hands but others opened fire on the Special Boat Squadron with a machine gunThey are tough, they are brave, they are durable, they are amenable to discipline.Tony Gould, Historian Prince Harry lived with a Gurkha battalion during his 10 weeks in Afghanistan.There is said to be a cultural affinity between Gurkhas and the Afghan people which is beneficial to the British Army effort there.Historian Tony Gould said Gurkhas have brought an excellent combination of qualities from a military point of view.He said: "They are tough, they are brave, they are durable, they are amenable to discipline."They have another quality which you could say some British regiments had in the past, but it's doubtful that they have now, that is a strong family tradition."So that within each battalion there were usually very, very close family links, so when they were fighting, they were not so much fighting for their officers or the cause but for their friends and family."Historically, Gurkhas who had served their time in the Army - a maximum of 30 years, and a minimum of 15 to secure a pension - were discharged back to Nepal.Pension battleBut last year, all retired Gurkhas won the right to live in the UK, following a high-profile campaign led by actress Joanna Lumley, whose father served with the 6th Gurkha Rifles.Gurkha veterans have also continued to fight for equal pensions with the soldiers they served alongside.In 2007, they won a partial victory when pension rules were changed to give serving Gurkha soldiers equal pension rights with other service personnel in the UK.But the British Gurkha Welfare Society said about 25,000 men who had retired before 1 July 1997 were denied the opportunity to transfer into UK armed forces pension schemesThe anti-Argentine Atlantico del Sur propaganda radio operation was not a great successBetween 1901 and 1906, the Gurkha regiments were renumbered from the 1st to the 10th and re-designated as the Gurkha Rifles
