The foregoing tables do not include the articles for a winter campaign, when climatic conditions make it necessary to have additional clothing, tentage, stoves, equipment, etc. Such conditions require that additional vehicles be temporarily attached to the baggage section of field trains. The organizations are presumed to be integral parts of a division on the march in the theater of operations, and at their maximum war strength. Organizations detached for independent action require additional transportation as stated on page 4, Tables of Organization, 1914. Unless stated otherwise in the tables, the quantities of expendable supplies, as shown therein, are deemed sufficient for a 10-day period. The loads shown are greater than need be carried under normal conditions of supply inasmuch as, ordinarily, less than 10 days' supply of such articles as soap, lantern candles (or mineral oil), rock salt, etc., will be carried, because these articles can be replenished with the same facility as rations. As a rule, the loads will be further reduced by one meal of rations and grain consumed before starting on a march.

Surplus kits do not accompany troops on the march in the theater of operations; but, if the length of a halt is of some considerable duration, these kits are temporarily placed at the disposition of

urganizations if practicable (F. S. R. 237). When the troops are actually engaged in field operations, each enlisted man should Carry

, on his person or mount, a change of underclothing (drawers, ehirt, and stockings). The divisional supply train maintains, in addition to rations and grain, 32 tons, or such amount thereof as may be necessary, of reserve supplies, including clothing, for the 1 of the entire division.
