Lal Shahi BFBS Gurkha

Former Gurkha Lal aims for maximum audience participation from soldiers and their families: "With operational deployments in mind it's important that we give our audience the very best service to keep in touch with their friends and families."

Having reviewed the Gurkha Service programming and coped with a major changeover of staff, Lal is now thoroughly enjoying taking part in the wider Garrison Community.

A novice golfer, he says he enjoys playing with a full handicap. "Unlike the mad dogs and my English colleagues," he jokes, "I am afraid of going out in the midday sun!"
