The Royal Canadian Postal Corps (RCPC) was an administrative corps of the Canadian Army. The Canadian Postal Corps was redesignated the Royal Canadian Postal Corps on 20 Jun 1961.[2] The crest of the Royal Canadian Postal Corps consists of a horn, with a Queen's Crown on top. Superimposed at the center of the horn is the text RCPC. At the bottom the text "Servire Armatis" is written on a ribbon.

Unification[edit | edit source]

When the Army, Royal Canadian Navy, and Royal Canadian Air Force were merged in 1968 to form the Canadian Forces, the administrative Corps of the Army were deactivated and merged with their Naval and Air Force counterparts to form the Canadian Forces' personnel branches.
