India Post is Issuing Stamp on Gorkha Rifles

India Post is today issuing a commemorative postage stamp on Gorkha Rifles. It was on April 24, 1815 that the first organised body of Gorkha soldiers took to arms under the British East India Company at Subathu in Himachal Pradesh. The unit that was raised on that day still serves with the Indian Army and is today known as the First Battalion, The First Gorkha Rifles or 1/1 GR for short.
