BENEVOLENT SOCIETIES FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE FAMILIES OF OFFICERS AND OTHER RANKS OF THE MEDICAL SERVICES.

IT has been suggested that Benevolent Societies be formed for the benefit of the families of officers and other ranks of the Medical Services auxiliary to the Regular Royal Army Medical Corps, viz., the Special Reserve, the Territorial Force and New Army.

Funds would be raised by voluntary subscriptions, and it has been proposed tha.t each branch of the Service should appoint a committee of five to seven members to administer its own funds.

A meeting presided over by the Director-General will be held in the Lecture Theatre of the Roya.l Army Medical College, Grosvenor Road, S.W_, on Wednesday, Ma.y 10, 1916, at 3 p.m., and it is hoped that as many officers as possible will attend.

In the meantime any inquiries may be referred to Lieutenant-Colonel G. St. C. Thom, R.A.M.C., War Office, S.W.

EASTER GREETINGS TO RUSSIAN ARMY. To foster comradeship and mutual good feeling between the Medical Services of

the two Armies Easter Greetings were sent early this month to the medical officers of the Russian Army.

The Greetings took the form of cards and were accompanied by a letter from Sir Alfred Keogh to the Director-General of the Russian Army.

The cards were double and were similar to those in ordinary use at Christmas time in this country. On the front page the Corps Crest was reproduced in gold and silver and, crossed below, the British and Russian National Flags in colours. On an inner page the following was inscribed :-

"The Director-General and the Officers of the Medical Services of the British Army send hearty greetings to their Comrades in the Medical Services of the Russian Army.

"Easter, 1916." The card was held together by a. knot of ribbon of the Corps colours.
