Royal Army Medical Corps

Medical services in the British Armed Forces date back to the reign of Charles II in the 1660s, but it was not until the Boer War at the start of the 20th century that the Royal Army Medical Corps was formalised.

During the First World War the corps reached its peak in both size and medical experience. A network of hospitals was created across the United Kingdom for military casualties from the conflict, while officers and servicemen from the RAMC were involved on the Front Lines around the world.
