Army Medical Officers' Benevolent Society

Army Medical Officers' Benevolent Society, 3, Bedford Place, Russell Square, instituted 1720, is a privately managed fund, for the benefit of orphans of commissioned officers in the medical department of the army. The objects of its bounty are selected from amongst those whose claims are the strongest; where there is an equality of claim, preference being shown to those whose father contributed to the fund.

The Army Medical Friendly Society, instituted 1816, conducted at the same office, is merely an assurance department.
