14th August 2019
National Memorial Arboretum

The Royal British Legion will host a commemorative event on Wednesday 14 August 2019 to mark the 50th anniversary of the UK Armed Forces' deployment on operations in Northern Ireland – the longest continuous operation in British military history. The event will be held at the National Memorial Arboretum, home of the Armed Forces Memorial.

The event is open to veterans and currently serving personnel that hold the GSM (NI).

If you are eligible and wish to attend, please register your interest via the Commemorative Events Team , providing your full name, email and relevant Service Association. A registration link will then be sent via the Association accreditation portal. Upon registration, you will be asked to provide basic details of service, dates served in Northern Ireland, service number and rank.

Please note, in the unlikely event that the NMA is unable to accommodate all those that express an interest in attending and are eligible to apply, spaces will be allocated via a ballot system.

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.
