Death of Tul Bahadur Pun

Very sad to hear of the death of Tul Bahadur Pun, a former Gurkha soldier and one of the figureheads of the campaign to gain settlement rights for veterans.

I was involved with the Gurkha campaign thanks to my friend Peter Carroll and took photos at many of their events.

The photo shows Pun meeting Nick Clegg prior to the march on Downing Street at which Pun and a number of his colleagues gave back their medals in protest at the refusal at that stage by the Labour Government to allow them to stay in the UK.
