Siddhanta Kunwar 1984 2012 British Armed For Memorial To The Fallen Lance Corporal Siddhanta Kunwar 28 The Royal Gurkha Rifles 30 October 2012 _________________________________ Lieutenant Edward Drummond-Baxter and Lance Corporal Siddhanta Kunwar both from 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles 1 RGR were killed on Tuesday 30 October 2012 while on patrol in the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand province Both men were attached to 40 Commando Royal Marines Lieutenant Drummond-Baxter and Lance Corporal Kunwar were based in Checkpoint Prrang in the southern area of Nahr-e Saraj On 30 October they were participating in a shura meeting with Afghan Uniform Policemen inside the checkpoint On completion of the shura they were shot and killed by a man wearing an Afghan police uniform who had been attending the meeting Lance Corporal Siddhanta Kunwar Lance Corporal Siddhanta Kunwar deployed to Afghanistan on 3 October 2012 as a Sniper Section Commander in the acting rank of Lance Corporal He was serving with A Delhi Company 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles attached to 40 Commando Royal Marines as part of Transition Support Unit Nahr-e Saraj He was based in Checkpoint Prrang in the southern part of Nahr-e Saraj District Helmand province He was on his third operational tour of Afghanistan Lance Corporal Siddhanta was born on 19 June 1984 in Pokhara Nepal where he lived with his mother and father He passed the arduous selection for the Brigade of Gurkhas on 17 December 2004 and having completed his year-long infantry training joined 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles in October 2005 Very soon after his arrival in 1 RGR he deployed with the Battalion to Bosnia-Herzegovina in 2005-2006 as part of the European Union Force in support of the Bosnian Government Lance Corporal Siddhanta then moved with 1 RGR to Brunei where he conducted extensive jungle training and qualified as a sniper in 2007 In late 2007 and into 2008 he deployed to Afghanistan on Operation Herrick 7 where he served in Garmsir in southern Helmand Province In 2009 he successfully passed a Junior NCO selection course and in 2010 returned to Afghanistan with 1 RGR on Operation HERRICK 12 to the Nahr-e Saraj area of Helmand province It was during this tour more than ever that his calm good humour sharp mind and huge operational experience became a touchstone for his fellow soldiers LCpl Siddhanta Kunwar was an outstanding soldier and a true Gurkha He displayed the calmness of mind cheerfulness in adversity and loyalty throughout his many operational tours - qualities that the Brigade of Gurkhas hold dear He served with many of the Companies within the Battalion and his loss will be deeply felt throughout 1 RGR He leaves behind his mother Krishna Maya Kunwar his father Shyam Kumar Kunwar stepmother Chhali Devi Kunwar his four sisters Shova Shyandya Smita and Sardha Kunwar and his elder brother Bhupendra Kunwar The family of Lance Corporal Siddhanta Kunwar said We are deeply shocked disheartened and in disbelief that Siddhanta is no longer with us But we shall treasure all the good things he did He enjoyed immensely of his profession and was fully committed towards it He has made us proud The whole family misses him dearly Lieutenant Colonel David Robinson Commanding Officer 1st Battalion The Royal Gurhka Rifles said Siddhanta Kunwar was a great character and a tough professional Gurkha soldier with a proven and impressive operational record Strong and highly experienced he stood out from the crowd not only as a highly capable sniper but also for his smile and sense of fun whatever the situation he found himself in On this his third tour of Afghanistan he knew the dangers and understood better than most what it meant to do his job at the toughest end of soldiering As such he was a role model for the younger soldiers around him They in turn responded greatly to his guidance and experience but also to his caring nature Away from operations he loved his sport and was a great team player he loved nothing more than having fun with his mates on the sports field Siddhanta was a proud soldier and was immensely proud to be a Gurkha He was one of the cornerstones of the Sniper Platoon where he was part of a close-knit team who were justifiably confident in their ability He would have done anything to support his comrades and friends around him I know they will miss him deeply The Regiment has lost a fine young man who epitomised all that makes the Gurkhas so special Living always so far from home Gurkha units are particularly close-knit and the loss of Lance Corporal Siddhanta is a bitter blow felt keenly by all ranks and families of 1RGR We will mourn his tragic passing and our thoughts and prayers are with his family in Nepal and friends at this terrible time Lieutenant Colonel Matt Jackson Royal Marines Commanding Officer 40 Commando Royal Marines said Lance Corporal Siddhanta Kunwar epitomised everything that a Gurkha should be he was dedicated professional and brave This was his third deployment to Afghanistan and he was continuing to excel in everything that he did but especially in his role as a sniper where his field-craft skills were beyond reproach It is clear that he thrived on the challenges that operations bring and enjoyed using the skills that he worked so hard to gain he was never found wanting He demonstrated the highest qualities of a Gurkha soldier and his legacy lives on in Delhi Company It is a huge privilege for me personally to command a Company of Gurkhas and to have known Lance Corporal Siddhanta however briefly We took him and have taken Delhi Company into the Commando family as one of our own His loss will therefore not only be felt by the Brigade of Gurkhas and Delhi Company but also by everyone serving within 40 Commando Group Royal Marines His sacrifice will never be forgotten and he will always be in our thoughts My thoughts and prayers go to his friends and family as they struggle to come to terms with his loss I offer you small comfort in knowing that Siddhanta died in the company of those who loved him for everything he was and everything that he did My thoughts are with them at this exceptionally difficult time Major Dave Pack Officer Commanding A Delhi Company 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles said Lance Corporal Siddhanta was an integral part of the Sniper Platoon within Support Medicina Company and of A Delhi Company He was an impeccable soldier with tremendous potential who had already shown himself to be a leader of men He excelled in his role as a sniper and as a junior commander As a sniper he was out of the top draw fit robust and with outstanding marksmanship skills As a NCO he was a shining example to the junior riflemen in his check point always leading by example and consummately professional in all he did He was the epitome of a Gurkha soldier Lance Corporal Siddhanta was not only a talented soldier but an incredibly likeable man Everything about him was good his cheerfulness his enthusiasm his attitude His family friends and colleagues should be incredibly proud of him It was a privilege to know him and to have him fighting alongside me I and all members of A Delhi Company are devastated the pain and emptiness is indescribable But this is nothing compared to the grief his family will be experiencing and our thoughts and prayers are with them Their son will never be forgotten he was a special man who made an indelible mark on everyone who knew him Major Dhyan Prasad Rai Gurkha Major 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles said The untimely death of Lance Corporal Siddhanta Kunwar is extremely sad news for us in The Royal Gurkha Rifles and the wider Gurkha family Having been a sniper since 2008 Siddhanta was of the best in the battalion He was a supremely competent soldier who excelled in marksmanship and field-craft - the essence of our trade He had proven himself time and again on operations This was his third operational tour in Afghanistan Siddhanta was also a fine sportsman whose natural ability at basketball and volleyball made him a fixture in the various competitions held regularly in battalion His example is exactly in line with the best traditions of nigh on 200 years of dedicated Gurkha soldiering in the service of the United Kingdom He has made us all extremely proud to have served alongside him As he is a loss to us so he is a terrible loss to his family in Nepal Our thoughts at this time are with them who will bear this sad news the heaviest of all Major Alex Biggs Officer Commanding Support Company 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles said Lance Corporal Siddhanta was an integral part of the Sniper Platoon within Support Medicina Company An impeccable soldier of much potential he had set an excellent foundation for his future career An experienced sniper who has excelled in the harsh environment of Afghanistan he was always forward leaning and utterly reliable Very much a team player he was always keen to help and join in at both work and play A keen sportsman he would always represent the Company whenever the opportunity arose As a person Lance Corporal Siddhanta was a gentleman Warm friendly emphatically polite and outgoing he was an integral part of both company and battalion A man of quiet wit and good sense of humour he was very much part of the RGR family and will be sorely missed Warrant Officer Class 2 Bishnu Thapa Officer Commanding Sniper Platoon 1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles said Siddhanta was a very loyal professional fantastic engaging and brave Gurkha soldier He was popular and highly capable in his profession and was warm witty clever and kind He was one of the finest snipers in the platoon He was the veteran of HERRICK 7 and 12 and was clear in his motivation for returning on HERRICK 17 I am stunned by his unexpected passing He was an immensely proud soldier He epitomised the very best qualities expected from a true Gurkha soldier He will be sorely missed by all within the platoon and his memory will endure in our hearts Our prayer and thoughts go out to his family and relatives May Goddess Durga give strengths to overcome at this very difficult time Rifleman Tuljung Gurung Support Company 1st Battalion The Royal Gurhka Rifles said Everyone knows that we have to leave this world leaving everything behind Today we lost one of our close friends Siddhanta Kunwar It is a sad day for all of us It's too hard to explain in just a few sentences how special he was He was one of the
