You are viewing a clean set of CASC collar devises for the WWI era Canadian Army Service Corps. All lug type attachments are original and in good order.
An excellent example for the discerning CEF collector.
The RCASC, as they are called today, was established, by General Order No. 141, as the Canadian Army Service Corps (CASC), on November 1, 1901. The CASC was designed similarly to the British Army Service Corps to provide all transportation and supply services to the Army. The original CASC consisted of four companies to support the Active Militia units. The Corps grew quickly, doubling the number of units by 1903, and added another three companies by 1905. By the beginning of WWI in 1914 the CASC consisted of  3000 personnel in eighteen companies.

In World War I, the CASC was a support element in each Canadian Division, and later on, in 1917 for the Canadian Corps. With the increased use of motorized vehicles, the CASC had a greater range and more mobility, and was able to carry much greater weight, and became more efficient. Motorized transportation also resulted in expanded responsibilities such as driving ambulances and engineer pontoon vehicles, carrying ammunition, and impliments for mobile repair and recovery for standed vehicles. In recognition of the services rendered during the Great War, His Majesty, King George V, ordered the addition of the designator "Royal", after the war, in 1919.

Guaranteed 100% genuine.
