Well, I have just had a brief off my OC about a conference the CO attended at AMD two weeks ago. It was billed as being the future of the AMS for the next 20 years. IMSB was to be explained and everybody was going to be told what lay ahead. It seems that all that happened was that there was an absolutely appalling brief (CO was so embarrassed to be seen at the meeting by DGS, RP and DMA staff and associated with some senior AMS officers briefing technique that all junior Officers and SNCOs have to attend a course on public speaking) and AMD Staff telling him what had not been resolved and what their problems were. So, what is happening with AMS units? As I understand it the AMS seems to be heading back to medical units supporting Bdes, AKA Fd Ambs although no reference can be made of this. What is happening to Fd Hosps? Are they going to be broken up and become Sqns of Med Regts or will Med Regts be broken up and become Sqns of Fd Hosps? In addition to telling the AMS what the unit were not going to be doing over the next 10-20 years the audience were also not told what was happening to the home of the Corps. Will it be Keogh, Camberley, or the Midlands? Apart from the obvious comments what are the AMS senior staff doing about the above? Vicious Circle was supposed to be âwriting a paperâ on the subject. Do we hold our breath for this paper or cancel Augustâs toilet paper delivery? Any ideas from the floor on any of the above?
