Such incredible faces to photograph. British Gurkhas have earned a reputation for bravery, winning nine Victoria Crosses in the Second Word War alone.
The Gurkhas are based in Folkestone. On arrival, I was greeted by one the Adjutant who was able to speak fluent Nepalese. The Gurkhas are led by British Officers, who are all Nepalese speakers, having to spend their first months of duty learning the language in Nepal. Each soldier who posed held a proud yet solemn expression, with few of them needing much direction at all: each soldier proud to be serving in this iconic Regiment.
