Gajbahadur Gurung

British soldier Lance Corporal Gajbahadur Gurung, age 26, was killed on January 27, 2012, in the Khar Nikah area of Helmand, Afghanistan.

He was fatally wounded in an insurgent attack while on a foot patrol. 

Gajbahadur was a member of the 1st Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment.

Father, place Gajbahadur on the
stairway to Heaven.
He was born in Majthana, Nepal. He joined the Brigade of Gurkhas on December 18, 2004. He served three times in Afghanistan during his military career.

Military officials describe him as intelligent, charismatic and a natural leader of men. He is also described as a humble man and a people person who got along well with everyone. 

Gajbahadur is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his wife Manisha, father Gum Bahadur, mother Lekh Maya, his brother Buddha and sister Junu.

Let us pray to God the Father that Gajbahadur Gurung is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
