Information about '10 GR (10th PrincessMary's Own Gurkha Rifles)'
The 10th Madras Infantry was formed from the Kubo Valley Military Police on June 1, 1890 under the command of Major Macgregor at the Mandalay Palace. In its first few years of existence, the regiment was referred to by two different names in the Indian Army Lists. In 1890 it was called the 10th (Burma) Regiment of Madras Infantry and the following year it was called the 10th Regiment (1st Burma Battalion) of Madras Infantry. But in reality, the second name was the one used by the battalion until 1892. On September 13, 1901 as part of a broad reorganization of the Indian Army it became the 10th Gurkha Rifles and the regiment maintained its assigned recruiting areas in the Limbu and Rai tribal areas of eastern Nepal.
The 10th Princess Mary's Own Gurkha Rifles was originally a regiment of the British Indian Army. Following India's independence, the regiment was one of four (i.e 2nd, 6th,7th and 10th) to be transferred to the British Army.
