Royal tribute to Gurkha heroes

The Prince of Wales yesterday paid tribute to Gurkha soldiers who were killed and horrifically injured in a hard-fought tour of Afghanistan.

Charles presented campaign medals to members of 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles (1 RGR) who recently returned from six months in Helmand Province and met privately to present the Elizabeth Cross to the families of the five members of 1RGR who died in Helmand.
