The Regimental Secretary and myself visited the in-Pensioners of the Corps at Chelsea on Tuesday 7 December 2021 to deliver their Christmas presents from the RAMC Charity. We currently have 11 in-Pensioners RAMC. Whilst a couple are restricted in their access due to ill-health and Covid precautions, the remainder were in lively form. Attached is their thanks.

Chairman RAMC Association

My name is Florrie Crass and I organise poetry events and Zoom groups for the online platform Home Stage.

With the Blakeney Cley and District branch of the Royal British Legion I am running a 'Poetry in the Armed Forces' Zoom series. The groups are designed for anyone in or associated with the Armed Forces to meet, share their experiences, find mutual support, and get creative with poetry. Completely free to attend, we are welcoming those in and associated with the Armed Forces from across the country, of all poetry experiences and levels of ability.

The group is a discursive, honest environment spurred on by the creativity of poetry, where attendees have felt able to open up about the struggles they face; including trauma, grief, and attempting to readjust to civilian life after leaving the Forces. The camaraderie and tight-knit characteristics of the Forces community are reflected in the frankness, laughter and mutual support that drive the group.

For more details, please visit our Home Stage page.

The RAMCA marching contingent at the Cenotaph lead by the Chairman Brigadier (Retired)Alistar Macmillan. Remembering all those past and present officers and soldiers of the RAMC.

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Major General Bill Pryn OBE QHS.

The funeral service will take place on Wednesday 15th December 2021 11:45 at Randalls Park Crematorium, Randalls Road, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 0AG

Full details of the service including a webcast link can be found here.

It is with regret that some people who have applied for tickets may not be able to attend this year, due to the following reasons. We will endeavour to let you know as soon as possible.

Operation of a seating plan which incorporates a number of doubles/single seats at 1m social distancing which allows them TOTALS of : 284 seats in the Nave, 139 in the South Transept and 109 in the North, and a total congregation size of 532 (rather than the 2000 they had in previous years).

This will leave us with a total of about 50 or so seats maximum  (rather than our usual 150) to include serving people and we will not all be able to sit together and we won’t all be in the Nave. Clearly We must include   Head of the RAMC and wife, Rep Col Comdt and wife , some serving , some of our  ROs and then the Widows  that have been invited as ever by the Corps, and there will be tighter controls. A single seating ticket and only sitting together if already in a bubble.
