  • Throughout the rest of the 19th Century from 1858 to 1914, there were ten regiments (1st to 10th Gurkha Rifles) each of two battalions, a total of some 23,000 men who were on operations mainly in the North-West Frontiers of India. Out of the many Gurkhas who won the Indian Order of Merit (IOM), the highest medal awarded for bravery, Kishanbir Nagarkoti’s is significant. Usually the medal was awarded 3 times because there were three classes only. After the first award, a bar was added above the medal to show the won it again. In the case of Kishanbir, because he had won it 3 times already, they did not know what to do when he won the fourth time in 1888! so in order to recognize his bravery, he received a special bar in gold and this outstanding medal is now kept with the 5th Gurkha Rifles in India.
