Territorial Army Field Hospitals


Territorial Army Field Hospitals The Territorial Army was formed on the 1 April 1908 (though known as the Territorial Force until 1921) and included members of the Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service Reserves, the QAIMNS(R). They were also named the Territorial Army Nursing Service (TANS).

When the QAs became a corps in 1949 members were transferred to the Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC) and retained their TA status, ranks and conditions.

Before 1921 the TA was known as the Territorial Force (TF) and nursing members were known as the Territorial Force Nursing Service. The TFNS were formed in 1908 after the Territorial and Reserve Forces Act 1907 was passed.

One thing all services have had in common is that they brought a wealth of nursing experience and worked alongside regular army nursing and medical staff. TA nurses continue to work alongside regulars and bring an abundance of nursing and medical knowledge from civilian practice and military training. Many TA nurses are former regular QAs who still want to be involved with the army whilst others are civilian nurses who wish to contribute to the armed forces whilst continuing their regular jobs. All form an important part in modern day military nursing and are deployed throughout the world with the regular army in locations like Serbia, Bosnia, Iraq, the Gulf and Afghanistan. As well as individual postings to field hospitals some TA units deploy at times of conflict.
