Dear All,

I am writing to let you all know that, for personal reasons, I am resigning as Chairman of the Association, with effect from the end of this month. I am very conscious that this will cause difficulties as, according to the rules, a new chairman will probably not be able to be voted in before the next AGM. Our President, Mark Pemberton, is looking at the way in which/if an inter regnum arrangement can be put in place until that time, but as this is a unprecedented situation it is not easy. I particularly regret that this will, amongst other things, leave the Association without a representative on the Trust Board, although Mark is also chairman of that body and may be able to speak on our behalf.

I am sorry that I have left writing to you until this very late hour. I was hoping that I would be able to tell you what arrangement are to be made, but this has not been possible yet.

I would be grateful if you, as the regional representatives, could cascade this information to the branches.

It has been a great privilege to be Chairman of the Association. Thank you all for your efforts, counsel and friendship. It goes without saying, but I will say it anyway, I wish the Association all the best for the future.

Regards,

Barry.

In Arduis Fidelis

The RAMC Association

William Boog LeishmanIn 1926, the RAMC Association was formed to further the camaraderie of WW1 Corps veterans with Sir William Leishman being the first President. There are now some 38 branches around UK with a predominantly veteran membership although most serving Corps members also are members centrally. The Association has traditionally been supported by Corps Funds and especially for the expenses of the branch standards and standard bearers.
