Gurkha casualities after the Falklands war

Post by Daniel Ezra »

As a personal endevour I would like to know what casualties there were amoungst the Gurkhas during, and after the Falklands War (including the post war clear-up).

Specifically I would like to know whether any Gurkha engineers were killed during the clear-up phase.

Any ideas of where to look?

I would guess (and it is only a guess), that the regiment museum would have copies of the war diaries. However, whether they would give you access is another matter.

YOu may also want to check the newspapers of the time.

http://qgea.org/index.html might be a good place to start - i reckon they'd know someone who had been there.

According to the War Dead listings for Operation Corporate, the only Ghurkha to die in the conflict was L/CPL Budhaparsad Limbu. No others are recorded on the list and no Nepalese names are listed among the Royal Engineers. This list also covers the clear-up immediately after the war. I'm sorry but I have no figures for wounded casualties or deaths occurring 18 months after.
Only the dead have seen the end of war!
