    THE SERVICES.

    Services include all the large part of the army whose main role is not combat but the supply
    and maintenance of the army as a whole. The major services are Royal Army Service Corps,
    Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, Royal Army Ordnance Corps, Royal Army Medical Corps, but there are many smaller organisations. Royal Signals are different in that they can
    be seen as both an arm and a service.
