The 11 Gurkhas was raised in 1918 with troops and officers being drawn from the various Gurkha Regiments. It was disbanded in 1922 and the troops being reverted to their original units. There were no separate insignias authorized for this regiment and the personnel wore the badges of distinction of their parent units, though there have been instances where unofficial badges were made and worn by some personnel.
Following India's independence in 1947, the Indian Army made the decision to re-raise the 11th Gorkha Rifles. The 11 Gorkha Rifles was officially re-raised on 1 January 1948.
