The dawn of the 17 Oct 2018 heralded in the annual Countess of Wessex Cup, hosted this year by the Corps of Army Music (CAMUS).  A day when a team of eight nurses and healthcare assistants, representing the Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC), would compete against the six other associated military units in challenge of the cup. 

Having met one another only the day before this diverse mix of regular and reserve QA's, from as far afield as Northern Ireland, quickly bonded over chicken, halloumi and hummus, which was with many thanks to the sponsorship and support of the QARANC Association.  Having forged the beginnings of a team, this group of women faced all of the challenges presented to them with spirit and enthusiasm. These were including, but not limited to; CBRN baking, 'deep-pool' assault course and rescue, dragon boat racing and of course no cup would be complete without a stretcher race.  Whilst not finishing with a cup, this team finished with new friends and experiences that they will not forget.
