Bandoleers not included above are of no value and will not be shipped to an arsenal. The weights of cartridge cases and clips by the thousand are given under (1) of this paragraph. The empty cartridge cases, metallic packing boxes, zinc-lined packing boxes, bandoleers, and clips which may be turned in under this authority are limited to those pertaining to the ammunition that has been furnished by the Ordnance Department for the U.

When such boxes are issued with ammunition furnished by a supply officer to an organization provided with unit accountability equipment, these boxes while in the possession of the organization will be held on memorandum receipt from the ordnance supply officer, and when emptied or no longer necessarily required by the organization will be returned to the supply officer.
