Edward Scott - Royal Army Service Corps
Edward Scott served in the Royal Army Service Corps between 1955 and 1957 as National Service. The Royal Army Service Corps (RASC) was the predecessor to the present day Royal Logistics Corps. It was responsible for land, coastal and lake transport; air despatch; supply of food, water, fuel, and general domestic stores such as clothing, furniture and stationery (but not ammunition and military and technical equipment, which were the responsibility of the Royal Army Ordnance Corps).
Edward was stationed in Tripoli, North Africa. In October 1956, the Suez Canal Crisis put the whole of the region on a war footing and the RASC was heavily involved in supplying the British forces.
