Members of the Corps (Regular, Reserve and Association) gathered outside Number 47 Markham Square, Chelsea, London SW3 on Tuesday 23 June 2014 for the unveiling of a Blue Plaque to honour Dame Emma Maud McCarthy, Matron-in-Chief of the QAIMNS on the Western Front during the Great War. The plaque was unveiled by Col David Bates, ARRC, current DANS, and there were short speeches from Ronald Hutton, Chair of English Heritage Blue Plaques Panel and Professor Christine Hallett, Director of the Centre for Nursing History, University of Manchester.

Late in 2013, the QARANC Association was approached by a relative of Kathleen Jenkins who served for 5 years in Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service (QAIMNS) during the Second World War. Her family advised the Association that they had been given an opportunity to acquire Kathleen's medals which had been awarded in recognition of her military nursing service. With support and advice from the Association, the medals became the property of her family who recently expressed a wish that these much treasured collection together with the story of her remarkable service as a military nurse, should be shared with those who have an interest in military nursing.

The QARANC Association is managed by a Board of Trustees who meet on a regular basis. The General Secretary of the Association, who is also the Regimental Secretary QARANC, carries out the routine day to day administration of the Charity. The Association is bound by its governing document, the 'Constitution', and must ensure compliance with the relevant statutory and regulatory frameworks including the need to demonstrate financial propriety.
