InArduisSong

I am currently a Lt Col in 202 Field Hospital and have served in the RAMC for 20 yrs. For me being a doctor is a vocation and being a medical officer in the Army has always been my way of using my medical skills to support the care of our service men and women. I hope the lyrics illustrates how much it means to me to be part of the RAMC.

In Arduis Fidelis will be released on 23rd June 2020 on itunes and spotify.

Dear all,

I hope that you are all well after what has been an extremely challenging few months for everyone. 

I wrote to you in March setting out the MOD’s plans to introduce the Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill into the House of Commons. 

The Bill was introduced to help tackle vexatious claims and the cycle of reinvestigations against our Armed Forces, to whom we owe a vast debt of gratitude. We introduced these measures to help to reduce the uncertainty faced by our Service Personnel and Veterans, as well as providing a better legal framework for any future overseas conflicts, recognising the unique burden and pressures placed on our personnel. 

In addition to this, the Government will introduce separate legislation covering Northern Ireland which will contain measures to address the Troubles which focuses on reconciliation, delivers for victims, and ensures that Northern Ireland veterans are treated equally to those who served overseas. We remain committed to moving forward on this as quickly as possible.

Quite recently, the family of a WW2 RAMC soldier from York, Jack Wood - their late father, has digitised and put on-line a fascinating collection of stories and documents, compiled during his captivity in Changi Jail.

Rundle CupThe Horsepower for Veterans Polo Project (V-Polo) is run by Veterans, for Veterans and delivers activity to improve the health and wellbeing of Veterans. It is a 2-year project that has been co funded by Tedworth Equestrian – the Armed Forces Equine Charity, and the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust Positive Pathways programme.
Why you should join as a Veteran
It could be that you wish to have a social membership and a sense of belonging so that you can gather again with your fellow veterans and other Armed Forces Community individuals at events and occasions in the beautiful surroundings of Tedworth Park. It might be that you may have never ridden or played polo before but want to give this fast, dynamic sport a go. You could already be a polo player who has not had the opportunity to re-engage in the sport as much as you might have liked. You might also be one of those talented polo players that has already represented your service and would like to do so again in a veteran’s team in front of large crowds of supporters. You may have heard or read about the mental benefits derived from the unique bond between human and horse and want to be part of that. Whatever your ambition the project hopes to deliver it for you.

RoyalArmyMedicalCorpsVeteransUnforgotten is a new history documentary series for the BBC, telling the personal stories of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events and their quest to find the individual who helped them through.

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.
