QARANC Corps Stable Belt


Picture and information about the QARANC Corps Stable Belt:


QA Belt Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC) is like most British army corps and regiments in having a corps stable belt. There are more photographs below. The belt colours of the QARANC corps belt is a horizontal white, scarlet and a dark blue stripe. Those in the photo above are worn by male nurses. As with most UK stable corp belts it is steeped in history and once researched we will include the origins and history of the QARANC stable corps belt.
If you are able to answer this question and help other members of the QARANC with such answers then please Contact Us. We would also love an up to date photo of a QA nurse wearing a corps stable belt.

Dental Nurse Stable Belt


Dental Corps Stable Belt
I have been sent the photograph of a corps stable belt above to identify. It has the QARANC buckle but not the scarlet, white and blue colours of the QAs belts. I suspect that it was for a member of the army dental services. Junior female ranks were members of the QARANC until the army medical services reforms in the late 1990s. So although they served with the RADC (Royal Army Dental Corps) they were members of the QARANC, trained at the QA Centre and followed the pay and rank structure of the QAs. Can anyone help with any info please? If so please e-mail me



QA Trade Belts


Each specialist qualification member of the QA had their own trade belt. So the green and grey belt in the image above is an example of the corps belt worn by Dental Hygienists whilst Dental Clerk Assistants wore the green and grey corps belt. This was from the time when any female health care professional became a member of the QARANC. Each member of the QAs could be easily identified from the belt fabric colour. So registered nurses (RGN, RMN) would wear a scarlet belt (often called red belt), the enrolled nurses (ENG, ENM) wore scarlet and grey, the Health Care Assistants (HCA) who were previously called Ward Stewardesses would wear all grey and the dental nurses and dental hygienists would wear green with a grey stripe. Each QA would wear the standard QARANC Corps buckle. Dental nurses are now members of the Royal Army Dental Corps (RADC). Other examples were the medical clerks though I cannot recall the colours of their corps stable belt fabric.

The photograph below, from the collection of Major Alan Woolley, is of a red RGN belt worn by female junior ranks:

Also from Alan’s collection is this QARANC Health Care Assistant (HCA) belt. They were previously known as a Ward Stewardess.
