We are just settling into new order and new structure not just here at HQ Army Medical Services but across the Army as a whole following the recent Army Command Review; what was the Army Medical Directorate (AMD) now ceases to exist and has been dissolved into the HQ AMS and the 2* Directorates at Army Headquarters. We no longer have a Director General of the Army Medical Services (DGAMS) so there has been a period of “turbulence” whilst we settle into the new command structures.

By way of an update on the past three or so months I thought that I would start with an explanation of the structure of RHQ RAMC in 2016. For the hundreds of you that contact me and attend functions regularly I apologise for going over old ground but I am aware that we have lots of hits every week from those who are not yet part of the Association or for whatever reason have been unable to join in at any of the advertised events.

The RAMC Association

William Boog LeishmanIn 1926, 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 38 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.
