Administrative history

The Canadian Army Service Corps, a branch of the Non-Permanent Active Militia, was formed in 1901. In 1936 it was honoured by being renamed the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps (RCASC). In 1941 the 69th Canadian Tank Transporter Company was established as part of the RCASC. It formed and trained at Red Deer, Alberta, and saw action in France and Germany in 1944-1945. During the war, the company was renamed the 69 Canadian General Transport Company, and it was later renamed the 69 General Transport Company. In 1969, as a result of the 1968 reorganization of the Canadian Armed Forces, the RCASC was superseded by the Logistic Branch. In 1991 a reunion of veterans of the company was held at Red Deer.
