A committee of serving and ex-serving members of the Health Services in South Australia are now meeting on a monthly to engender an interest in Army Health Service History in serving and ex-serving members in this State to ensure the history of the Health Services is preserved. The committee will be engaged in the collection of historical data to build up the Health services history in this State. The committee has formed an affiliation with the Army Museum of South Australia Foundation (AMOSAF) to ensure that any significant artefacts and documents are lodged with museum. All committee members are members of AMOSAF. It is hoped that as interest increases health services personnel will engage in the physical preservation and maintenance of artefacts. The initial intention of this group is to encourage the collection of documentation, photos and other historical data to lodge with the Army Museum of South Australia (AMOSA) and to post historical information on the RAAMC website which will be also linked to the AMOSA site.
