This Number Two Service Dress uniform was worn by Sergeant Robin Rai, formally of the Queen’s Gurkha Signals, and donated to the Museum in 2013.
The Number Two Service Dress Uniform is worn for formal and ceremonial duties and is kept in immaculate condition.
The badge of the Queen’s Gurkha Signals can be seen on the jacket lapels and a ceremonial Kukri knife is attached to the belt.
The uniform together with a specially commissioned film in which Robin describes the uniform and what it means to be a Gurkha in the British Army, are now on display in our Local History Gallery.
Nuneaton and Bedworth has a proud association with the Gurkhas, who are based locally at Gamecock Barracks, Bramcote.
