About the Royal Canadian Logistics Service
The Logistics Branch originally existed as separate units and regiments throughout the history of the Canadian Armed Forces, with its members ranging from cooks to administrators. This year marks the 50th anniversary of those units being brought together under the banner of a unified Logistics Branch.
