The Adjutant General.

GENERAL ORDERS,

WAR DEPARTMENT,
No. 52.

WASHINGTON, September 8, 1915. General Orders, No. 43, War Department, 1913, as amended by Paragraph I, General Orders, No. 76, War Department, 1913, and by Paragraph IV, General Orders, No. 6; Paragraph II, General Orders, No. 33; Paragraph III, General Orders, No. 72, and Paragraph II, General Orders, No. 80, War Department, 1914; also Paragraph I, General Orders, No. 79, War Department, 1913, and Paragraph II, General Orders, No. 72, War Department, 1914, are rescinded, and the following substituted therefor:

1. Classification of property.Hereafter for the purpose of accounting for Government property (engineer, ordnance, and signal property) in the hands of organizations for which unit accountability equipment is prescribed, it will be divided into classes, as follows:

Equipment “A” is the equipment prescribed for use in campaign, in simulated campaign, or on the march. It is limited to the animals and vehicles prescribed in the Tables of Organization, the equipment and clothing worn on the person, and the articles carried on mount, and transported in field, combat, and divisional trains.

Equipment "B" is the equipment which, in addition to equipment "A," is prescribed for the use of troops in mobilization, concentration, instruction, or maneuver camps; and during such pauses in operations against an enemy as permit the better care of troops.

Equipment “C” is the sum of equipments "A" and "B."

Garrison equipment is the equipment prescribed for use in garrison only.

2. Unit accountability equipment and accountability therefor.-The unit accountability equipments comprising the engineer, ordnance, and signal property of the various organizations will consist of articles of “A” and “B” equipment prescribed in the unit accountability equipment manuals for the authorized strength, and will be accounted for by organization commanders on returns (Form No. 451, A. G. 0.) to be rendered to the chiefs of the staff departments concerned on December 31 and June 30 of each year. In case of complete transfer of the unit accountability equipment, the transferring officer will render a final return on

which he will certify that he has turned over the equipment to his successor, and the receiving officer will, on the same return, acknowledge receipt of the equipment.

The returns of unit accountability equipment ("A" and “B”) will be submitted to the commanding officer for direct transmission to the chiefs of bureaus concerned.

3. Accountability and responsibility for other Government property. All garrison equipment and other Government property in the hands of organization commanders, except that held under unit accountability will be held on memorandum receipt from the various post or other designated supply officers, who will render to the chiefs of the staff departments concerned returns as at present for all property for which they are accountable.

4. Maintenance of the unit accountability equipment.

a. Organization commanders will be held responsible that the unit accountability equipment of their respective organizations is at all times complete and serviceable. When any articles of the unit accountability equipment, except those under charge of armament officers and not specifically listed in War Department publications or orders as subject to the action of a surveying officer (certain articles under charge of armament officers are listed in War Department publications as subject also to the action of a surveying officer) are lost, destroyed, or become unserviceable through fair wear and tear, and are no longer repairable with the facilities available in the organization, post, or district, the organiza tion commander will secure the necessary approved expenditure list, survey reports, or inventory and inspection reports to cover the same. These vouchers, in duplicate, will be turned over to the post supply officer or other designated issuing officer, who will issue the articles necessary to replace those lost, destroyed, found unserviceable and destroyed, or turned in to him for shipment to an arsenal or depot, in accordance with the regulations governing such shipments. For the excepted articles of artillery and machine-gun matériel under charge of armament officers and not specifically listed in War Department publications or orders as subject to the action of a surveying officer, organization commanders will communicate directly with the armament officer in all cases

requiring replacement or repair by means not provided within the organization.

b. In case any articles of this equipment become unserviceable from any cause and are no longer repairable with the facilities available, or are lost or destroyed, and are needed for immediate use, they will be replaced at once by the supply officer upon a certificate signed in duplicate by the organization commander setting forth the facts, the articles required and that he will furnish a proper voucher to cover same. The supply officer will drop from his return under these certificates, the articles so issued. The organization commander receiving such articles will file with his next return, forwarded to the chief of the supply department concerned, a regular voucher as required by existing orders and regulations to cover the articles enumerated on his certificates furnished the supply officer. When issues are so made the total money value of the articles issued will constitute a money charge against the organization commander until he shall have been relieved of such charge by the submission of the vouchers referred to in his certificate.

c. In all cases where old serviceable or cleaned and repaired articles are in the hands of the issuing officer they will be issued instead of new articles. Organization commanders to whom articles are issued will acknowledge the receipt of such articles either (a) upon the approved expenditure lists, survey or inventory and inspection reports, state, ment of charges on pay rolls, or other evidence of final disposition now required by regulations, or (b) in the absence of the ability to supply such evidence immediately, the receipt will appear upon the organization commander's certificate referred to above.

d. In case all the articles covered by such vouchers are not replaced at one time the acknowledgment of such as are actually replaced at the time the vouchers are turned over to the supply officer will be made on Form No. 514, A. G. 0. (credit voucher), Replacement of Articles of Unit Accountability Equipment, and the articles remaining due when replaced will also be receipted for on this form.

e. If on the administrative examination of the property returns of the issuing officer any voucher submitted by an
