Gurkhas react to early homecoming

The task was to hand over the area to the Afghan National Security Forces and it went pretty well; so our mission was achieved and that cuts our six months tour down to four months.

My wife is waiting for me at home, so it’s exciting to go back and see her - so it is good.

– Corporal Sojet Gauchan, 27, from Bravo Company 1 RGR
