 The AMS Annual Athletics Championships was held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst over 23rd & 24th June 2016; the event was a huge success and was attended by some 500 personnel both competing and spectating.

You will all no doubt be delighted to hear that Keogh Barracks is now firmly back in the hands of the Army Medical Services following its closure as the Phase 2/3 training establishment in 2014. 4 Medical Regiment, 22 Field Hospital and Frimley Park (for accommodation and messing) are now based there and have made great headway in terms of developing, refreshing and making the place their home! Currently the Officers and Sergeants are sharing what was the old Keogh Barracks Officers Mess; however there will be a new WOs’ and Sgts’ Mess build sometime next year overlooking Mitchett Lake and I firmly believe that Keogh Barracks is a great place to be for the young soldiers and it really is fantastic that we have it back.

The Army Medical Services (AMS) Warrant Officers' and Sergeants' Mess Past and Present Dinner will take place on Saturday 1st October 2016 at the Victory College at Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Read on for more details of the event and application forms.

We are just settling into new order and new structure not just here at HQ Army Medical Services but across the Army as a whole following the recent Army Command Review; what was the Army Medical Directorate (AMD) now ceases to exist and has been dissolved into the HQ AMS and the 2* Directorates at Army Headquarters. We no longer have a Director General of the Army Medical Services (DGAMS) so there has been a period of “turbulence” whilst we settle into the new command structures.

The RAMC Association

William Boog LeishmanIn 1926, the RAMC Association was formed to further the camaraderie of WW1 Corps veterans with Sir William Leishman being the first President. There are now some 38 branches around UK with a predominantly veteran membership although most serving Corps members also are members centrally. The Association has traditionally been supported by Corps Funds and especially for the expenses of the branch standards and standard bearers.
