Gurkha wounded being evacuated by mule, Italy, 1943

Photograph by Major Wilfred Herbert James Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, Italy (1943-1945), 1943.

Several Gurkha regiments, including battalions from the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 10th Gurkha Rifles were involved in many of the key battles of the Italian campaign, winning particular fame at Monte Cassino and the breaking of the Gothic Line defences. In this image, two wounded Gurkhas are carried to safety by mule. These animals proved very useful in the mountainous Italian terrain.

From an album containing 233 photographs compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters).
