Gurkha 200 Pageant

Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, the Sultan of Brunei and Queen Elizabeth II attend the Gurkha 200 pageant in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea on June 9, 2015 in London, United Kigndom. The event is part of the bicentenary celebrations of Nepalese Gurkha soldiers in the British armed forces. Since first serving as part of the army in British-run India in 1815, they have built a reputation for ferocity, loyalty and razor-sharp kukri fighting knives and 26 of their members have been awarded the Victoria Cross, Britain's highest military award for bravery.
