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. 

The 2018 Inter-Nursing Services Tennis tournament was held at RAF Halton and was represented by four members from the Queen Alexanders Royal Army Nursing Corps

Capt Simon Roberts, Cpl Muthoni Ligale, LCpl Lauren Middlemiss and Pte Tevin Gama.

There was some fabulous tennis played by all throughout the day from both the RAF & Army. It was a very close tournament but the Army were victorious for the second year running.

We would also like to a say a very special thank you to the QARANC Association for their sponsorship and support.

Fields of Mud, Seeds of Hope is a unique sculptural piece commemorating the sacrifices made by the generation who served during the Great War and the legacies the conflict created.  Composed using battlefield mud from Passchendaele and earth taken from a Great War military camp in the U.K the work starts thoroughly soaked. As the wet mud dries and cracks the five battle weary silhouettes gradually appear, trudging home their backs to the past and facing the future.

Deep within the mud millions of ungerminated poppy seeds lay dormant. 

When decommissioned segments of the sculpture comprising of the dried earth and seeds will be made available to the public to create their own artworks or memorial gardens, therefore allowing the legacy of the work to continue in another form indefinitely. This is an artwork which is as much about those who returned home from the Great War as it is about those who didn’t. 

Fields of Mud, Seeds of Hope will be on display in Ripon Cathedral from 3rd October to 14th November. 

Admission to the exhibit is free, to the Cathedral by voluntary donation and can be viewed 7 days a week from 9:30-17:00.
