British army logistics corps journals online

If your ancestor served in the Royal Army Ordnance Corps (1914-1964), the Royal Army Service Corps (1905 - 1964), the Royal Pioneer Corps (1943-1964), or the Army Catering Corps (1947-1964) you may want to check out their on-line journals
at www.rlcarchive.org.
You can browse page by page or do a search by word or phrase. Viewing the image of the original is on a pay-per-view basis.
A simple search yields a clickable list of hits which show the search term in brief context. According to a post on Rootsweb's GENBRIT list the journals provide details of operations, exercises, unit news and Corps sport and details of individual's’ promotions, postings, marriages and obituaries as well as casualty lists, seniority lists and medal awards.
