Welcome to the official website of the 6th Queen Elizabeth's Own Gurkha Rifles.
 
Provided and maintained by the 6th Gurkha Rifles Regimental Association, it aims to help perpetuate the memory of the Regiment for all those who had the privilege and pleasure to serve in it. It is also a means of communicating the activities of "The Association" and "The Trust" as well as informing visitors of the activities of the 6th Gurkhas, both past and present.
 
Additional information for Association Members is in the "Members Area". Further Battles and more archive photographs will be added over time. Many images on the site have come from Regimental albums and archives, now the property of "The Gurkha Museum" in Winchester and we are most grateful for their permission to use them. Other images have been willingly provided by individuals, too many to name, but to whom we are equally grateful.
 
We welcome your feedback and questions via the "Contact" page. Jai Sixth!
