Following the success at the recent Royal Artillery Cup on the bank holiday Monday, where the AMS polo team out manoeuvred the Adjutant Generals Corps, Royal Artillery and Help for Heroes polo team to win the division, the team now looks forward to its next challenge. The Margot Turner Challenge will be played at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) on Saturday 23 June 2018.  The AMS polo team will play against the RMAS polo team in what promises to be quite an entertaining polo match.

Brigadier Dame Evelyn Marguerite Turner DBE, RRC (1910 – 1993) known as Margot Turner was a British military nurse and a World War 2 prisoner of war. Turner served with the Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service from 1937 to 1949 and the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC) from 1949 to 1974.  She was an Army officer who epitomised leadership, courage and clinical excellence.

The Margot Turner Challenge is the signature event of AMS Polo and aims to showcase and celebrate the team at the home of it's Regimental Headquarters.
