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.
