Short answer is no. Those are Red/Scarlet - worn by a number of regiments including some Infantry Regiments and also Royal Artillery. The ones worn by the RAMC are “dull cherry” which is more of a maroon colour

It might be my PC, but they do not look RAMC to me - they look red. But ight and pictures on PCs can change a color hue/tone, so they may be RAMC. I have seen RAMC items with a rich dull cherry to a darker ruby backing.

I just did some brightness adjustment and this is what I got. If this is the color you see in hand, then I think they are RAMC.
