Late Post. If you havent heard already – Suraj Gurung a newly married Gurkha soldier died in Helmand Province in Afghanistan on Saturday. This war has took enough lives, be it Gurkhas, Americans, British and other armies. Newly married Gurung was nicknamed ‘netboy’ due to his attachment with computers to keep in touch with his wife Permila.
Rifleman Gurung was born in Pokhara and raised in the hill town of Gorkha. He passed the gruelling selection for the British Army in December 2007.
