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.

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 Duke of Gloucester is Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Army Medical Corps, the largest corps in the Army Medical Services.

Yesterday The Duke held a telephone meeting with Major General Alan Hawley to learn more about how they've been supporting the national response to Covid-19

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

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.
