Association News

Every year in early June the Jean Boucton Heritage Cup is polished and prepared, ready to be battled for at the Margot Turner Challenge where the AMS Polo Team duel against the RMAS Polo Team on the prestigious grounds of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

The Margot Turner Challenge is a day to honour an extraordinary woman, Brigadier Dame Evelyn Marguerite Turner DBE, RRC (1910 – 1993) known as Margot Turner. She showed unstoppable tenacity in the face of many hardships during her time as a British military nurse during World War II and was the first woman in British nursing history to be taken a prisoner of war. Befittingly she is remembered by a display of teamwork and spirit, which so characterised her life.

As part of this year’s event, a raffle will be held with proceeds going to Equine Therapy for Veterans with PTSD; a truly powerful initiative held at the RAC Saddle Club in Bovington.

Will the AMS team retain the cup after a half goal victory in the summer of 2018 or will they succumb to the determination and tenacity of the cadets of RMAS polo? Bring a picnic and come along to what promises to be a fantastic family day out.

On Dec 8th, Millbank held it's annual Christmas Lunch in the Ruben's Suite at Guy's Hospital.
There was a very good turn out - our largest lunch ever. Members enjoyed the spectacular views over London from the 29th floor despite the weather being a bit grey whilst enjoying a complimentary glass of cheer.  As always, we had a raffle, tombola & a stall with goodies which raised a significant sum of money for the branch.
Our members certainly dig deep into their pockets for which we are very grateful.  Kim Bourne from the Museum of Military Medicine was also there with some small items for sale- she was kept busy so hopefully made some pennies for the museum. Also, we were delighted that Col Alison McCourt & Col John Quinn & his wife were able to join us.  After a traditional Christmas lunch which was very tasty & the loyal toast Col Alison spoke to us all about the Corps & the future as well as the importance of the Association. Friendship was much in evidence that day.  Everyone seemed to have enjoyed the day which is wonderful which was enhanced by all the staff looking after us all so well.

Thursday Dec 8th - Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey
 
10 members attended The Field of Remembrance which was an honour.  His Royal Highness, Prince Harry of Wales was in attendance and as always charmed all those present, especially some cadets from Barbados who were at the next plot to the QAs. They were very excited. After the act of remembrance we headed off to The Red Lion on Whitehall for lunch. We were delighted to have 3 members from the Newcastle Branch join us also we were pleased to welcome Lesley Steer who has now transferred to the Millbank Branch. On our way we stopped in Trafalgar Square to pay our respects to suffragette Millicent Garrett Fawcett 
A grand time was had by all.
