The Gurkha Museum commemorates the services of the Gurkhas to the British Crown since 1815. Displays cover the Gurkhas' service in the old Indian Army which took them to battlefields across the world. From 1948 onwards the displays cover the story of the four Gurkha regiments transferred to the British Army and the corps which were subsequently raised to join them.
