Sachin Limbu

British Rifleman Sachin Limbu, age 23, died on January 2, 2012, in Birmingham, England.

He was with the 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles. He was a machine gunner. He came from Rajghat, Morang, in Nepal.

He died as a result of injuries sustained on June 24, 2010. This poor man hung on for a year and a half before he passed away. 

He had been on patrol in Walizi, Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He moved into a fire position to provide protection to his comrades and was caught in an explosion from a hidden explosive device. He was terribly injured. 

Father, place Sachin on the
stairway to Heaven.
Family members stated that they are extremely proud of Sachin and of his military service. He is their beloved son. 

Military officials stated that they are proud to call him their brother in arms and that Sachin was a credit to his regiment and to the military. 

Sachin is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his father, Dillisher Limbu and his mother.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Sachin Limbu is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
