This is the official site for the history and heritage of the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps and its antecedents (Army Nursing Service; Princess Christian’s Army Nursing Service (Reserve); Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service, Territorial Force Nursing Service, Territorial Army Nursing Service)


This site is supported by the QARANC Association and managed by the QARANC Association Heritage Committee.

The Association joins together in practical friendship all who are serving or have served in the Corps, irrespective of rank, sharing in its record, its achievements, tradition and history. Our Motto is FRIENDSHIP and we try and maintain that through our branches, which organise functions, and events where members can meet up. In all that we do, our natural willingness to help past and present members stems from the tradition and camaraderie that only Army Service life can instil. Visit the Association site for more information.
