The brigade, which is 3,640 strong, draws its heritage from Gurkha units which originally served in the British Indian Army prior to Indian independence, and prior to that of the East India Company. During World War I (1914–18), more than 200,000 Gurkhas served in the British Army, suffering approximately 20,000 casualties, and receiving almost 2,000 gallantry awards.
