This Day in History: 1878-06-02

Order of the Day by Lieutenant Colonel D Macintyre , Commandant 2nd Goorkhas: ‘Whilst greeting all ranks on his resumption of command in Malta, the Officer Commanding needs scarcely remind the Regiment that the Indian troops (of which this Corps has the honour to form a part) which have now for the first time been employed for service in Europe, will be constantly watched not only by Great Britain but by almost the whole civilised world. He therefore feels confident that every man in the Battalion, which bears so distinguished a name, will do his utmost whether in camp or quarters to uphold the honour of the Prince of Wales ‘s Own Goorkhas.’
