Royal Army Service Corps

The Royal Army Service Corps (RASC) was the unit responsible for keeping the British Army supplied with provisions (apart from weaponry and ammunition, which were supplied by the Royal Army Ordnance Corps).

The Corps was formalised in 1888, but had its origins in French Revolutionary Wars at the end of the 18th century. As a unit, it was involved on all fronts in the First World War, and suffered casualties as a result.
