Gurkha Welfare Trust inauguration

On the 22nd December 1969 at 14:00 hrs. fourteen men, eight of them military officers, met in donated offices in Moorgate in the City of London. This was the first Trustee meeting of The Gurkha Welfare Trust.

Among them was Colonel C.S.F. Carroll, OBE, MC, later to retire as Brigadier Carroll. In 2008, Peter Carroll helped oversee the Gurkha Justice Campaign, fighting for the rights of retired Gurkhas to a decent pension.
