Army Service Corps School
 
 History

Army Service Corps is one of the biggest and senior Corps of the sub-continent. History of Army Service Corps Centre stems from 1810 when Army Commissariat Department of Bengal, Madras and Bombay was constituted. Since then the Corps has witnessed various stages of evolution, and the Centre evolved accordingly. Initially, Supply and Transport Centres were organized which were located in various parts of the sub-continent to feed the manpower of Indian Army Service Corps. After partition, Army Service Corps Centre was established at Kakul in November 1947. The Centre was then shifted to Chaklala and later moved to Jhelum in 1960. Soon after the 1965 Indo-Pak War, it was moved to Nowshera in 1966, which became its permanent location.
