No - the rules were introduced post BSE. Before that, farmers (and others - remember "Crown Immunity"?) were able to slaughter locally. It's all changed
Gurkha culture? Will we get to drink rum out of jerricans?
I used to be a regular there, excellent scoff and polite staff then you walk out into Reading.The "Standard Nepalese Tandoori" in Reading, near the Caversham bridge, used to be the dogs items, is it still going strong?
They never had bhang chutney though, damn those customs officers!

Did the Jungle Bunny course in Brunei, the safest food to eat was the Gurkha bart but after 8 weeks it get a but repetitious. Seeing a wild pig, caught, then done to death with a trip flare picket and dispatched ready for the evening curry was both horrifying but bloody tasty!Spent a year with 6GR in Borneo and deployed on Op Granby with the Gurkhas so got a bit fed up of curry but they know what they're doing. They get issued a live goat (more of a treat then day to day grub on condition they appoint a 'goat boy' to look after it etc...jammy bastard got its own 4tonner when I saw it..) Then a prayer is said say and off with its head ( job of the youngest Gurkha in the reg) The meat is cut up so quick that the pile of little cubes that Billy becomes are still quivering as they sit on the plate!! Amazing. Curry is served with dried chillies that are dipped into little piles of salt tipped out directly on the table....(at camp in CK aswell.)
