The Royal Medical Corps

The RAMC operated the army’s medical units and provided medical detachments for the units of infantry, artillery and other arms. The Corps was assisted in its work by voluntary help from the British Red Cross, St John’s Ambulance, the Friends Ambulance Unit, the Voluntary Aid Detachments and hundreds of private and charitable ventures.

We have specialists in the field of historical medical education who have also served with the British Army overseas as medical officers. So the experience they bring to the group is fantastic, interactive and always make people say, “I didn’t know that!”.
