The Royal Logistic Corps Museum
or RLC Museum
at Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut
is the regimental museum for the Royal Logistic Corps
. It is open to the public free of charge.
The RLC was formed from the Royal Corps of Transport
, Royal Army Ordnance Corps
, Royal Pioneer Corps
, Army Catering Corps
and the Postal and Courier Section of the Royal Engineers
. Although The RLC dates from 1993, it has a rich heritage dating back to the thirteenth century.
The RLC Museum amalgamated the Forming Corps' collections to form a unique resource: there is no civilian or other Service equivalent covering logistics as a whole anywhere else in the world. It is involved in restoring, preserving, recording, interpreting and displaying its collection and tracing the rich history of The RLC, its forming corps and military logistics in general.
The bulk of the RLC Museum collection is made up from two of the regimental museums of the forming corps; the Royal Corps of Transport
Museum, previously situated at Buller Barracks
and the Royal Army Ordnance Corps
Museum, in Blackdown
, both now closed.
Unfortunately none of the vehicles held by the RCT Museum were transferred; these instead were held at the Museum of Army Transport
in Beverley and then at the National Army Museum
's store after the Museum of Army Transport
The museum also holds a smaller amount of material from the Royal Pioneer Corps
Museum in Northampton
and a selection of objects from the Army......
