This Day in History: 1915-02-19

Regimental history records that the 2nd Battalion: “had become the recipients of a most kindly and generous token of the  friendship existing since 1857 between the 60th Rifles (King’s Royal Rifle Corps) and the 2nd Goorkhas, of the valued gift by the former Regiment of £100 [approximately £11,000 in 2021] towards ameliorating any distress which had fallen to our men and their families. This further proof of the strong bond of friendship between the two Regiments could not be but an extra incentive to our efforts in the cause for which the British Army was fighting”.  Click here to read the correspondence relating to this.
