  • Royal Army Dental Corps (RADC): (Gob docs) Dentists, Hygienists (scrape and polish), Techs (false teeth makers), Dental Support Specialists (sweeping floors, doing paperwork, being over promoted).
  • Royal Army Veterinary Corps (RAVC): Something to do with animals (see QARANC)
  • Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC): Nurses, Health Care Assistants (milk and sugar?). Nurses come as Officers and Other Ranks, nurses only have to be qualified for 2 years to gain a commission and attend a 10 minute course at Sandhurst. Legend has it that there is a busload of nurses from Rinteln enroute to your location for the party on Friday night.
  • Corps of Army Music (CAMUS): Musicians during peacetime. Guard force, pan bashers, sandbag fillers, general dogsbodies and nurse chasers during war time when they are attached to the AMS. Allegedly there is something called a Chemical Decontamination Area involved (cf. myth regarding busload of nurses from Rinteln)
