The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiments

timthumb (3)The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiments or 10 The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiments (10 QOGLR) is a British Army regiment. It was launched on 5 April 2001 as part of the Royal Logistic Corps. It was a result of the amalgamated The Queen’s Own Gurkha Transport Regiment, The Gurkha Transport Regiment and The Gurkha Army Service Corps, which were subsequently formed as component of the Brigade of Gurkhas on 1 July 1958

The recent anniversary activity on July 1, 2015, 10 The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment was privileged to honour and host Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal at St Omer Barracks in Aldershot. Her Royal Highness was able to visit the Regiment in her capability as Colonel in Chief of the Royal Logistic Corps (RLC) and Affiliated Colonel in Chief QOGLR and was cordially greeted by Maj.Gen ASJ Fay (Col QOGLR), Col DN Corrie (Col RLC), Col JG Robinson (Col Brigade of Gurkhas) and Lt Col PMK Beaumont (Commander 10 QOGLR).

Her Royal Highness visit was focused on three main themes: the response to April’s devastating earthquakes in Nepal, the Regiment’s support to the Ebola Outbreak in Sierra Leone, and the celebration of 200 years of Gurkha Service to the Crown.

Welcomed in the Officers’ Mess, the Gurkha Temple and the Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess, Her Royal Highness was introduced to an estimate of a hundred members of the Regiments and their families to share flash backs and peculiar events and achievements during the period of twelve months. The ceremony concluded with a Kukri dance, a performance from the Regimental Pipes and Drums, and the display of a specially commissioned brooch of the QOGLR Cap Badge.

The Cap Badge of the Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment is one of the latest additions to upgrade the Gurkhali collections and items and also to honor the prestigious Brigade of Gurkhas. It is a cloned version of the originally produced cap badge that can be seen only in official army departments and the museum of Gurkhas in the United Kingdom.

The Royal Logistic Corps is lucky enough to have its own bespoke Gurkha regiment in the form of 10 The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment. It’s an enormous privilege to serve with the Gurkha warriors and it is needed to have the best of the best soldiers to work hand in hand with them.
