The QARANC Association will fully fund a PhD Scholar from within the Association membership to undertake PhD studies at the University of Cardiff commencing October 2019 (or sooner if it suits the person accepted).

The Association has a particular interest in the heritage of the Corps with one of the Objects of the Association being, “Fostering esprit de corps, comradeship and the welfare of the corps and preserving its traditions .", something that is also made clear in the establishment, and the Terms of Reference, of the Heritage and Chattels Committee.

Although much has been written about the history of Army nursing, and many scholars continue to research and write our history, there is a lack of authoritative writing from the perspective of Army nurses themselves. It has been difficult for Army nurses, serving or retired, to gain the necessary skills and standing to be able to write history that is acceptable in academic and scholarly contexts. There are members of the Association who would like the opportunity to gain these skills at Doctoral level, in order to advance the body of knowledge from within Army nursing.

On Saturday 7th July Millbank Branch held their AGM at the HQ of 256 (City of London) Field Hospital.
20 members attended. Some members were unable to attend at the last minute due to transport issues. Those who did make it battled with folks going to the Pride March & others making their way to the Finsbury Park Festival. If that was not enough they had to contend with the heat! We were melting.
The meeting went well which was then followed by an interesting & enlightening talk from Lt Col Tony McGrath QARANC 2iC of 256 about where they are now & where they will be in the future in the scheme of things.
Members were most impressed with his presentation.
This was follow by a sumptuous afternoon tea & a glass of Prosecco.
 
We have set the date for next year's AGM so that it does not clash with Wimbledon's finals
Millbank Branch attended The Old Comrades Association Parade - 3rd June 2018

It was another glorious day of sunshine for the Federation of OCAs of London territorial and auxiliary units.  I paraded the Millbank standard  supported by Maj Gwin Foley & Capt Jane Parker.

There were 11 standard bearers and a good show from the old comrades. Wreaths were laid at the Royal Exchange and the march proceeded through the City of London to the Armoury House on City Road.  Due to the very hot weather, the inspection was kept brief.  The RAF chaplain talked about love and how wasteful war is through the poems of William Auden and Rupert Brook. Lunch was a delightful summer salad and cheesecake.  The guest speaker talked about the loneliness many veterans experience in older age - very poignant and touching. 1 in 4 veterans aged over 75 live alone. 
He asked us all to keep in contact and look out for each other in the spirit of friendship. ‘

They have performed various tasks throughout history including raising local militia units and numerous ceremonial duties.

Lord-Lieutenants may appoint a Vice Lord-Lieutenant and the nomination is submitted to the Prime Minister in order that the approval of The Monarch may be obtained. The Vice Lord-Lieutenant will stand in when the Lord-Lieutenant cannot be present, is sick or otherwise unable to act, and will carry out such duties as the Lord-Lieutenant decides.  The Greater London Lieutenancy as well as supporting the Monarch and the Royal Family in Greater London, is a bridge-builder, connecting individuals, organisations and social networks, to enhance Londoners’ sense of belonging and therefore, increase social inclusion within the capital.
