REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION FROM THE ASSOCIATION

From time to time the Association receives requests to provide contact details of its members to other individuals and organisations, or a request for us to search our records for information. However data protection legislation makes it clear that we can only use data for the purpose for which it has been collected. In our case, we use members’ personal information in connection with their membership, to tell them about events and to send them the QARANC Association Gazette twice a year. The Association does not release members contact details to third parties. It is possible for a notice to be placed in the Gazette, depending on the nature of the enquiry. This may take some months to be done, but a response is unlikely.

We also receive requests from previous members of the Corps for information about their careers or their service details. Regimental Headquarters does not hold any records about previous members of the Corps, and these are held at the Army Personnel Centre. These records are available on application to the Army Personnel Centre by the individual, or the next of kin of a deceased individual. The Museum of Military Medicine likewise does not hold personnel records of individuals.

The National Archives hold records up to 1920 of individuals who served in the Armed Forces. These are in the public domain. A reader ticket is required to look at records, and charges are made for copies.

RHQ would like to remind  members that annual subscriptions to the Association are now due.

Members should check their bank accounts to see if direct debits/standing orders have been paid.

Any member who still pays annually by cheque should send a cheque for £12.00  to the General Secretary at RHQ. Direct debit mandates are available from RHQ for members to change from cheque payment to direct debit.

The QARANC Association 70th Anniversary first day cover was launched officially on 1 December 2017. This is an auspicious date as it is the anniversary of the birthday in 1844 of Alexandra at the Yellow Palace in Copenhagen. In 1902 she became the Patron of the newly formed Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service, and her name continued to be associated with the service when it became Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps in 1949.

Now that all the orders have been filled and sent out, there is a limited number of covers still available to purchase from RHQ. The cost is £7.50 including postage.

If you wish to purchase one, please send your cheque (Payable to the QARANC Association) for £7.50 to: Regimental Secretary, RHQ QARANC, HQ AMS, Robertson House, Slim Road, Camberley, Surrey, GU15 4NP.

If you are unable to send a cheque, please use a postal order as we do not currently have the facility to accept payment by Paypal or BACS. Please do not send cash. In order to fulfil your order promptly please include your name and address, including post code, a day time telephone number and email address.
