Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

On 25th April every year Italy celebrates ‘National Liberation Day’ to commemorate their freedom in 1945 from the tyranny of the Fascists and Nazis. The battle to free Medicina, one of the last actions of the war in Italy, occurred on 16th April 1945. To this day the people of Medicina remember the sacrifices made by two Allied units, the 14th/20th King's Hussars and the 2/6th Gurkha Rifles, who freed their town resulting in the joint Battle Honour 'Medicina'.

Light and Life in the Middle Hills

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Lt Col (Ret'd) Johnny Fenn, ex QOGLR and now professional photographer, has had his new book 'Light and Life in the Middle Hills' published. It was launched in the Victory Services Club London on 25 April, exactly one year after the first of the massive earthquakes which devasted Nepal, with Joanna Lumley and Johnny signing copies for those of us lucky enough to be present.

The stunning images in the book were taken when Johnny was serving in Nepal and since. It includes photographs taken after the earthquake. This beautiful visual record of Nepal today is highly recommended. It is published by Uniform Press and is available from Amazon and other top book sellers.

A portion of the proceeds of the sales will go to the Gurkha Welfare Trust.
