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.

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.
