About Us

The Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) traces its history back to the foundation of the Regular Army, following the restoration of King Charles II in 1660, but it was not until 1898 that officers and soldiers were incorporated into one body known as the Royal Army Medical Corps. The RAMC motto In Arduis Fidelis is translated as Faithful in Adversity. The 31 Victoria Crosses won by the Corps, including two double VCs and one recipient of both the VC and the Iron Cross, bear testimony to the motto and the character and ideals of the men and women who wear the badge.

We also publishe material from all ranks, services and corps within the UK Defence Medical Services, both Regular and Reserve, and also welcomes submissions from civilian authors.
