    Another fine Gurkha Regiment, now sadly extinct, as a result of amalgamation into the Royal Gurkha Rifles.

    In peacetime, a normal two battalion regiment, the 10GR raised 3rd & 4th battalions for WWII.
    The regiment fought in Iraq & Syria in 1941, the Italian Campaign, and in Burma. One VC was awarded to a soldier of the regiment.
