Train4TradeSkills News: The most secure construction site in Britain

Group of Gurkha soldiers guard construction site with military precision

A construction site in Wiltshire hasn’t just got a usual security team guarding it out of hours, but a team for highly trained, ex-Gurkhas.

The housing development at Bulford Camp in Wiltshire is being guarded by 9 Gurkhas, who have taken to their security role with military precision, as they all used to serve in the same regiment.

The ex-Gurkhas work together and use their military experience to maintain order and discipline, as well as doing their job efficiently.

The Gurkhas historically originate from Nepal and are known to serve as soldiers in the Indian and British Army and have served in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan.

Train4TradeSkills Radio spoke to a Gurkha last month, who was training to become a plumber and change career when he left the army. You can listen to T4TS student Dev Pun’s interview on Train4TradeSkills Radio at
