Another challenge for the Queen's Gurkha Engineers Quartermaster, Captain Gary Forsey, was getting the uniforms to fit:
"Gurkhas are not the same height as a standard British soldier... So I had a logistic nightmare sourcing and tailoring.
"None of this kit is issued for the guys. Grey coats come for guardsman size, not for Gurkha size.
"It was an interesting challenge but as you can see, they look fantastic."
While undertaking the Queen's Guard, the Gurkhas wear Kilmarnock hats on parade and march at a faster rate of 140 paces a minute.
They also carry their rifles at 'the trail' - down by their side - rather than on their shoulders like the rest of the Army. Ensign of the Guard will not carry a regimental flag, due to the QGE's links with the Royal Engineers.
Each Gurkha carries a kukri instead of a bayonet on parade, which are drawn for inspection before the Changing of the Guard at Wellington Barracks.
