British Army Cap Badge – Royal Army Medical Corps (Officer)


Current issue of R.A.M.C. Officers cap badge – marked on back J Gaunt London

In 1857 the Medical Staff Corps was reorganised into the Army Hospital Corps, although it reverted back to its former name in 1884 and by 1898 there were two distinct organisations within the Army Medical Services, the Medical Staff Corps and the Medical Staff (i.e. the officers). These two separate organisations were reorganised into one Corps, the Royal Army Medical Corps, by Royal Warrant on 23rd June 1898. With the formation of the RAMC medical officers were granted the same rank structure as the rest of the British Army and assumed full executive and administrative responsibility. Three months later RAMC personnel were serving in the Sudan and only one year after its formation the RAMC was fully committed in the Anglo-Boer War.
