It is with deep regret to belatedly announce that the late Maj Terry Holmes died on Monday 13th October 2023 in Innsbruck Hospital (Austria).

Terry served in the RAMC from the early 60’s to the mid-90’s and as a former RSM and then Late-Entry Officer, was well known and liked across the Corps as a highly professional, smart, and proud soldier who was totally dedicated to the RAMC. Diligent, and always helpful, Terry was widely respected and the epitome of a role model, both as a RSM and then an Officer.

A service of remembrance was held in Alpbach Church on 20 October, the pace being due to local Austrian custom and practice. He will be interned in Alpbach graveyard, on 15 December 2023; which is intended as a small family service.

Terry leaves behind his Wife, Val (who currently intends to remain in Austria) and his Son Simon (A Serving REME Maj).

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.
