More than 1,500 Nepalese women have signed up with private firms to train for a possible career with the British army after it allowed them to join the Brigade of Gurkhas for the first time in nearly two centuries.

Britain is studying how Nepalese women could be recruited for its Gurkha brigade, and authorities took out a newspaper advertisement this month asking women to give "notification of interest" to serve in the army.
