"The first organized unit to emerge (concentrating on the Army's supply and transport functions) was the Royal Waggoners, much later to become the Royal Army Service Corps. Since those days, although suffering from a variety of changes in uniform and title, the RASC have been with us in one way or another. Theirs is a remarkable history, and Graeme Crew has managed to convey in one short volume the enormous contribution the Corps has made to the military might and fighting strength of this country. Wherever the British Army were, the Corps made sure that its supplies, ammunition, petrol and every item of military equipment needed by troops in the combat line arrived in time, at the right place and in the right quantity. Without the RASC no army could survive. Their regimental march is 'Wait for the Waggon' - how glad so many of us have been in the past to know that it would always arrive...." Includes music and lyrics for the Regimental March. Slight cigarette odor, light browning to edges of text block and in margins of pages, minoer wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light browning - mainly on spine and flap-folds, two small edge tears archivally taped, light soiling, old price label on front flap, light wrinkling and tiny chips at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very small scuff on rear panel.
