Unit History: 40 Company Royal Army Service Corps

40 Company Royal Army Service Corps
On May 1st 1960, 40 Coy RASC was designated 40 (Infantry Brigade Support Transport) Company.   In 1962 a major re-organization of British Forces in Cyprus was started.  As a result of this, 40 Coy at Dhekelia was disbanded.   Cyprus was sad to see 40 Coy go, as it had over many years achieved a reputation for being "Second to None" in the sporting scene.  Later 7 Coy RASC played a large part in rescue operations and reconstruction in Belize, Central America in the aftermath of a severe Hurricane.
In July 1965 The RASC as a Corps was reformed and became The Royal Corps of Transport, i.e. the RCT.
