Citation

18th December, 1901 During the action with De Wet at Tygerskloof on the 18th December, 1901, this officer continued to attend to the wounded in the firing line, under a heavy fire at only 150 yards range, after he himself had been wounded, and only desisted when he was hit a second time, and, as it was first thought, mortally wounded.

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.
