History

The Association was probably founded c 1929-1930. From 1932, the group met at the Ipswich Tavern, St Stephen's Plain, Norwich, but its headquarters were moved to the Comrades' Club, St Faith's Lane, Norwich in 1938. The aim of the association was 'to keep its members in touch with one another, and to promote harmony and good fellowship by social gatherings and the like'.
The 2nd East Anglian Field Ambulance Royal Army Medical Corps was sent to Gallipoli in July 1915 as part of the 54th Division. Following the evacuation of the peninsular, they were sent to Egypt and took part in offensives across the Sinai Peninsular and in the three battles of Gaza. They followed General Allenby's campaign in Palestine and by the end of the First World War, were based north of Beirut.
