jackwood portrait 1We are always looking for tales of our forebears and unusual titbits from our heritage. 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.

He joined the RAMC as a Territorial in 1939 and was serving at Singapore in a military hospital when the Japanese captured it in 1942. He survived the War and later became Lord Mayor of York.

The link below will take you direct to the collection, it is an eclectic mix of material and far beyond military content managed in five volumes.

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.
