The Royal Corps of Transport (RCT) was a British Army Corps formed in 1965 from the transport (land, water and air) elements of the Royal Army Service Corps (RASC) and the movement control element of the Royal Engineers (RE). The depot was Buller Barracks in Aldershot. In 1993 the Royal Logistic Corps (RLC) was formed by the amalgamation of The Royal Corps of Transport, Royal Army Ordnance Corps, Royal Pioneer Corps, Army Catering Corps, and Postal and Courier elements of the RE. “Rickshaws, Cabs and Taxis” was a humorous version of the initials RCT.
