Dear Friends,

I do hope that everyone is coping and that you and your families have remained safe and well through these very strange times.
As you know we have had to cancel our Corps Sunday Service and lunch this year along with all other Blue Book events until at least October. At this stage of the pandemic we won’t be organising a central event but I know that Branches and individuals will mark the day in a more low key way.

We remain proud to commemorate and celebrate 122 years as a Corps and look forward to meeting up again and to better days ahead.

In Arduis Fidelis

rbl logoLetter from Bob Gamble, Assistant Director of Commemorative Events, Royal British Legion:-

In November last year I wrote to the relevant veteran associations and charities regarding the Legion’s ambitious plans for events in 2020 which we hoped would build on the success of the D-Day 75 commemorations in June 2019. The advent of the Covid-19 crisis has forced the cancellation of a number of those events with VE75 perhaps being the most notable.

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.
