Book of Remembrance


Photograph and information about the QAIMNS and QARANC book of remembrance and the turning of the pages


 Book of Remembrance

Above is a photograph of a sample page from the QAIMNS and QARANC Book of Remembrance that was held at the Former Army Staff College in Camberley until 2009 and now resides at the QARANC Chapel at the Aldershot Garrison Church (see lower page of War Graves Memorials Nurses). QARANC.co.uk would like to thank Terry Hissey for the photo.

This page from the QA Book of Remembrance reads:

Sister Boundy E. 8th September 1943

Sister Bowyer D. 1st May 1946

Sister Boyd-Roberts S.C. 23rd May 1944

Sister Brady D.J. 4th October 1945

Sister Brand M. 16th February 1942

Sister Brown A. 12th February 1944

Sister Burrows I. 12th February 1944

Sister Butler S. 16th February 1944

Sister Carroll E.K. 14t February 1942

Matron Cheyne A.M. 13th September 1943



The QA book of remembrance honours those QAs who were killed on active service in wartime and other conflicts. More information about books of remembrance further below.



The Drummer Boy The Drummer Boy continues the adventures of QARANC nurse, Scott Grey, who has the special gift of seeing military ghosts. In this novel he is haunted by the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo. It is based on the legends of the Tidworth Military Hospital Drummer Boy.


Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War where I describe battlefield medical care of this era.


Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.

Memorial Book


A Service of Dedication and Turning of the Pages of the QARANC Memorial Book takes place at the QARANC Chapel of the Royal Garrison Church of All Saints in Aldershot. A wreath is usually placed at the Brookwood Military Cemetery for those members of the Corps who gave their lives in conflicts.



Turning of the Pages


The Turning of the Pages ceremony usually takes place on Corps Day, the Sunday following the Annual General Meeting of the QA Association, in September and during the QA Association Remembrance Day Service. It also takes place once a year at the QA Memorial National Arboretum. Those taking part in the Turning of the Pages ceremony can include Regular and Territorial Army members of the QARANC as well as former members of the QAs. Once the page has been turned the names of those who have fallen are read out in respect of their memory.
