British army corps shown in military art prints, Army Service Corps, Royal Corp of Signals, Royal Army Medical Corps, Pioneer Corps, Army Catering Corps and Royal Corps of Transport shown in military art prints by Terence Cuneo, David Rowlands, Richard Simkin and Richard Caton Woodville.

 The Army Service Corps      The supply of an army in the field was, in the last century, usually organised solely for the duration of a war, and partook largely of the civilian element. The first well-considered effort to provide a reliable force for these important duties was made in the Peninsula, when the “Royal Wagon Train” was formed.  This was revived in 1854 as the “Land Transport Corps”; but it was not very successful, and was reorganised after the war as the “Military Train.”           It next appears as the “control Department,” of which the “Commissariat and Transport,” and a “Military Store Department,” were sub-branches; but this machinery proved cumbrous, and it disappeared in 1875, to be followed by the “Army Transport Corps,” which was finally given its present name.

           The disposition of the Transport in an English army is at the rate of one Transport company to each division, and one for the corps’ head-quarters in the first line, four others being relegated to the second line, chiefly for hospital needs.  Each company has four sections, one of which carries staff baggage and provisions for the “details”; one section is told off to assist the medical department, and the other two convey staff baggage and provisions.           It has shared necessarily in the campaigns in which the army has taken part; and at Rorke’s Drift, in 1879, Acting-Assistant Commissary J. L. Dalton won the Cross for Valour.  During the Mutiny, in the pursuit of Koer Singh from Azimghur, the men did good service as cavalry; and in one of the sharp skirmishes Michael Murphy and SamuelMorely, of the Military Train, gained the Victoria Cross.    There are thirty-seven companies in the “Army List,” with one supply and two remount companies.      The blue uniform has white facings.

The Army Chaplains’ Department     According to Clode, in the year 1662 a chaplain was appointed to every regiment, and in the Articles of War of that year they were directed “to preach to them as often as with convenience shall be fought fit.”      The first Chaplain-General was the Rev, J, Gamble, in 1796, when regimental chaplains were done away with, and their duty was performed by ordinary parish priests: but for foreign service there was a little provision, so that in 1806 “Lord Cathart embarked with a corps of 14,000 men, and only one chaplain,” and throughout the Peninsular War there were practically few, if any, chaplains employed.  The office of Chaplain-General was abolished in 1829, but was restored in 1846.     Three heroes of the department may well be mentioned here.  The first is the Rev J.W. Adams, who won the Victoria Cross in Afghanistan for helping the wounded and saving life; another is the Rev G.N. Gordon, who was mortally wounded at Candahar when attending to the men under a heavy fire; and the third is the Rev. R. Collins, who crossed from one square to the other at Hasheen, in the Soudan, to Convey a message from Major Alston.     In the “Army List” the Presbyterian chaplains have the letter “P.” before  their names, the Roman Catholic “R.C.”    The black uniform has the usual badges on the collar.  The forage-cap is adorned with black embroidery.

Sgt Dowling MM & L. Cpl. F. Evans, REME, February 26th 1992 by David Rowlands.

Sgt Dowling and L Cpl Evans with the 16th/5th The Queens Royal Lancers. 16th/5th The Queen's Royal Lancers provided the reconnaissance for the 1st (UK) Armoured Division. On 25th February 1991, the regiment led the advance from Saudi Arabia, through the Iraqi defence line and into Iraq. The next day, they were attacking the enemy in the area code-named Objective LEAD. Each squadron of the Regiment had a small tracked logistical element mounted in M548 load carriers crewed by personnel of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. On 26th February, two of these M548s, belonging to C Squadron, were being led by the Squadron Sergeant-Major in his Ferret scout car when an enemy T59 tank appeared and chased them. One vehicle broke down during the pursuit. Fortunately, the T59 lost them in the sandstorm, and the other M548 stopped and was able to take off the crew. As the visibility improved, the tank saw and destroyed the abandoned M548 and gave chase to the remaining one. .........
