Corner of the bread store – ready to be sent up the line

An officer of the Army Service Corps in white uniform and black boots is standing beside massive racks full of bread. His cap badge appears to be the eight-pointed star of the Army Service Corps. In 1918 they became the Royal Army Service Corps and a crown was added on the top of the badge.
‘Tommy’ is ‘Tommy Atkins’, a fictional hero figure representing the average British soldier. The Army Service Corps were responsible for much of the China procurement and transport of supplies.
