 About the Book 

This is the story of the Royal Army Ordnance Corps from its formation in 1918 until its absorption into the Royal Logistic Corps in 1993. Its seventy-five year life as a Royal Corps was preceded by a long history dating back before time immemorial where Ordnance in various shapes, forms and organizations provided the vital support needed to maintain the Armys weapons at war and in peace.In the post WWI world and running right through to the end of the century wherever the Army was so was the RAOC. Its skills were wide ranging, its decorations, particularly for Bomb Disposal, among the highest and hardest won, its sporting prowess of the highest order and its bearing, record, pride and regimental tradition as fine as any in the Army.
