From James Calder:

 

I thought you may wish to inform the “Old and Bold" that unfortunately my father Ian Calder passed away last week aged 85 years.


He was in the RAMC(V) for decades and reformed the RAMC Band - he was it’s first President and then Hon Col of 254 Field Ambulance.
The AMS band are sending a representative to a Service of Thanksgiving 2pm Monday 9th March 2020 at St Andrew’s Church, Girton, Cambridge.


The Daily Telegraph published an obituary last Thursday and The Times are publishing one next week.

The RAMC Association

William Boog LeishmanIn 1925, 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 28 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.
