ASC celebrates 251st Corps Day
Udhampur, Dec 8: Army Service Corps (ASC) celebrated its 251st Corps Day at HQ Northern Command here on Thursday, a defence spokesman said.
“While the history of supply and transport services is as old as the history of organized warfare itself it was in 1760 that the very rudimentary supply and transport organizations of the three presidencies of the East India Company were brought under the council of a single authority.
However, Dec 8 1950, the word Royal was dropped and ever since the Corps celebrates its raising on this day,” he said.
“The General Officer Commanding (GOC) of Northern Command Lt Gen KT Parnaik complimented all ranks of ASC for their dedication, high degree of professionalism and flexibility in performing their duties in difficult and inhospitable terrain conditions in the northern areas,” the spokesman said.
