To be pedantic, the ASC was created in 1869 for the "other ranks" of the Military Train. The officers (and if he went to Winchester College I imagine he was one) amalgamated into the Control Department, which in 1875 was split between the Commissariat, the Transport Department and the Ordnance Store Department. So I guess in the AZW he wasn't in the ASC.
