Royal Army Pay Corps

The Royal Army Pay Corps (RAPC) was a former corps of the British Army responsible for administering all financial matters. It was amalgamated into the Adjutant General's Corps in 1992.

Before the Second World War, the RAPC did not accept recruits directly from civilian life, but only transfers from serving soldiers who had been in the Army for at least six months. [War Office, "His Majesty's Army", 1938]
