Sunday Dec 11th - St. Paul's Cathedral
The three branch members who paraded the standard at The Lord Mayor's Show paraded the standard again at St. Paul's Cathedral. Also in attendance was Maj Brigid Gallop. This year our standard was placed on the high alter & our members sat in the quire next to the Lord Mayor - such an honour. 
After marching with the Old Comrades the group enjoyed a good curry lunch at The Mansion House. Another great day for our members.
The Cenotaph.
 
On a beautiful sunny autumn morning 7 members joined the QAs to march past the Cenotaph. There was a good turn out this year. We were delighted to meet up again with the ladies from Newcastle.  Major Jacqueline Hall was interviewed by the BBC about her experience in Afghanistan.  This year we were at the very back of the parade but it had it's compensation - we were on the telly! As always, we all were proud to be there particularly as it was the centenary of the Armistice.  
Another Remembrance week gone & I am very proud that branch members are so supportive of the events.
Saturday Dec 10th - Lord Mayor's Show
 
Three members, Janette Parkins, Karen  Ives & Fran Olivier Kay paraded the Millbank Standard at The Lord Mayor's Show.  They were in at St.Clement's Dane Church so had a very good view of proceedings.  All were delighted & honoured to have taken part in a very special parade.  Col Jane Carey Harris was also in the parade - with her Guild of Nurses hat on.

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.
