200 years of legacy of Gorkha Rifles – 24.04.1815 to 24.04.2015

“This regiment has done us proud for centuries and have frozen the enemies down to their spines on the battle-field. It is fed in their system with the motto,’ kafar hunu bhanda marnu ramro ! that It’s better to die than be a coward.

Founded 24.04.1815, this regiment pre-independence was known as the ‘Gurkha’Regiment’.Its contribution to the World War One can’t be undermined as they did add their bit of enormous bravery and sacrifice over there in defence of Givenchy, Battle of Nueve Chapelle, Second Battle of Ypres, Battle of St. Julien, Battle of Festubert, Battle of Loos.

Their engagement at Mesopotamia, Kut-al-Amara, Palestine, Megiddo, Sharon and especially at Gallipoli can’t go unsung.

This Regiment produced India’s first-ever Field Marshal in Sam `Bahadur’ Manekshaw, as also two other Army chiefs in Gen G G Bewoor and the present one, Gen Dalbir Singh Suhag.

General Suhag inspecting the Guard of HonorInfiniti Communications takes pride in ‘congratulating’ the Regiment & its proud legacy of leadership at helm .

‘May the fight in you rustle always, Dear Soldiers !’
