Care for Veterans is a Rehabilitation Home based in West Sussex which supports physically disabled ex-service personnel of the past, present and future.

During the First World War, makeshift hospitals cropped up all over the country to deal with the huge number of wounded soldiers requiring surgical care. Once the war had ended, it became increasingly clear that many of these men, so seriously injured and disabled, would require ongoing care.

Situated at the former Queen Alexandra Hospital Home, Care for Veterans was established in 1919 to care for those soldiers returning from World War 1 with life changing disabilities.

For over 100 years, they have provided long term nursing care, rehabilitation, respite, and award-winning end-of-life care to disabled ex-armed forces personnel from the RAF, Army, Royal Navy and auxiliary services.

For anybody who wishes to know more about this facility or even have a visit, their Liaison Officer, Nick Francis (www.careforveterans.org.uk Direct Line: 01903 790336) will be more than pleased to help.

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 25 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.
