INTRODUCTION 

The object of this manual is to assist officers detailed 
as Quartermasters with troops in camp or in the field. 
The data contained herein are carefully prepared from 
existing orders, regulations and laws. 

To insure the prompt supply of the articles of equip- 
ment necessary for an organization, the Quartermaster 
should, first of all, know (not guess) the quantity and kind 
of supplies required, then submit requisition for same 
stating on the face of the requisition the necessity for the 
articles enumerated thereon. 

The requisition approved by the Commanding Officer 
should then be taken in person to the Division authority 
(usually the Quartermaster) for approval. Should a ques- 
tion come up at Division Headquarters as to the necessity 
for supplying any article, the Quartermaster of the organi- 
zation will be there to explain. 

This method will always result in expediting the sup- 
plies for an organization. 

The policy which some Quartermasters pursue of asking 
for more than is required, expecting that the quantity 
asked for will be reduced, is entirely wrong, a relic of the 
old army and seldom if ever results satisfactorily. 

Alexander E. Williams, 

Captain, Q. M. C. 



CHAPTER I 
Personnel 

1. Formerly regimental quartermasters and commis- 
saries assisted by second lieutenants handled all supplies 
for troops in the field beyond the rail head or advance 
depot. 

2. The recent law increasing the army did away with 
the regimental quartermasters and commissaries and the 
battalion quartermasters and commissaries, and provided 
instead a supply company for each regiment, assigning to 
that organization sufficient commissioned officers to look 
after the supply of the regiment. 

3. Each Infantry Supply Company shall consist of one 
captain and one second lieutenant mounted; each supply 
troop of Cavalry shall consist of one captain and two sec- 
ond lieutenants; each supply company of a regiment of 
Artillery shall consist of one captain and one first lieu- 
tenant. 

4. Existing laws permit the detail of regimental supply 
officers as assistants to post quartermasters' when in gar- 
rison, but prohibit their being given accountability for 
post funds or property. 

5. The object of this provision is to leave the regi- 
mental supply officers, to whom we will refer in this 
manual as regimental quartermasters, always free and 
ready to take the field with their commands. While in 
garrison the regimental quartermasters are to assist in 
supervising the procurement, issue and use of supplies and 
the engagement of services necessary for the commands 
to which they belong. 

6. The quartermaster is a member of the staff of the 
regimental commander and as such is responsible that 
each organization of his regiment obtain its authorized 
quota of rations and equipment and that the latter is 



8 .VAXJAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 

renewed whenever necessary to keep it always ready for 
field service. He may also be required to pay the organiza- 
tions of his regiment when no officer of the Q. M. C. is 
available. 

7. When a regiment takes the field alone the duties 
of the quartermaster are to rent camp sites, purchase 
necessary fuel and forage and to provide rations and 
other supplies. When the regiment is a part of a larger 
unit, the quartermaster must obtain information as to 
camping ground and procure fuel, forage, rations, etc., 
from the quartermaster in charge of the advance supply 
depot or line of communications. 

8. On the march the senior regimental quartermaster 
assumes charge of all field trains in the Brigade, under 
direction of the Brigade commander. 

9. When troops are transported by rail it is the duty of 
the quartermaster of an organization to arrange with the 
railroad agent for the necessary accommodations, inspect 
same, supervise the loading of supplies and animals, make 
assignment of organizations, marking on outside of each 
coach the number of men and their organization assigned 
seats in that coach. 

10. During the trip the quartermaster should keep in 
touch with the representative of the railroad and arrange 
for the stops necessary for watering and exercising all 
animals. The feeding can usually be done without special 
stops. 



MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 9 

CHAPTER II 

Transportation 

Wagon Transportation 

12. The wagons assigned to a regiment are organized 
into field and combat trains. In the wagons of the combat 
train are carried the ammunition and entrenching tools, 
while the field train is composed of the wagons in which 
are carried the rations and baggage. 

13. The field train is divided into two sections, the 
baggage section and the ratign section. Each wagon 
should be plainly marked to show to which section it 
belongs. 

14. When preparing for a march the wagons are placed 
and loading done under supervision of the quartermaster. 
After being loaded, the wagons of the ration and baggage 
sections are assembled and moved under his direction, 
while the combat wagons are assigned to battalions or 
other subdivisions and each follows immediately in rear 
of the organization to which assigned. 

15. Under the present system when a command arrives 
at camp, after a day's march, the men have no rations in 
their haversacks except the two days' reserve which is to 
be used only in an emergency. So it is of utmost impor- 
tance that the ration section be brought up and one day's 
rations issue as soon as possible after arrival of troops 
in camp. 

16. The ration wagons which are unloaded must be 
sent back immediately to the rail head or distributing point 
to be refilled. The baggage wagons after being unloaded 
should be utilized for hauling wood and water needed in 
camp for preparation of meals. 

17. A place should be designated as the corral, where 
the picket line will be stretched and all wagons required 



10 MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 

to proceed there-as soon as released from hauling around 
camp. No team should be unhitched before reporting at 
the corral, where the wagons are parked for the night all 
facing in direction to be taken when they move out next 
morning. 

18. The combat wagons should report at the corral as 
soon as ammunition is unloaded and remain under direc- 
tion of the quartermaster until sent by him to report to 
their respective organizations when the march is to be 
resumed. 

19. The following table shows the allowance of wagons 
for each organization as given in the tables of organiza- 
tion:

The wagon furnished for use of the army is known as 
the escort wagon and is constructed to carry 2500 pounds 
as normal load or 3000 pounds as maximum. Under no 
circumstances should the maximum load be exceeded, ex- 
cept under urgent military necessity. It is true the wagon 
will carry five thousand pounds, but one load as heavy as 
that will strain the parts so that the useful life of the 
wagon will be considerably shortened. So the overloading 
in the long run is not economical or in the interest of 
the service. 

20. Supplies other than ammunition carried on combat 
wagons:

24. The daily allowance of forage for animals is as 
follows: Horse, 12 Ibs. grain, 14 Ibs. hay, 3 1/3 Ibs. straw 
for bedding; horse, large, 14 Ibs. grain, 17 Ibs. hay, 3 1/3 
Ibs. straw for bedding; mule, 9 Ibs. grain, 14 Ibs. hay, 3 1/3 
Ibs. straw for bedding. To each animal 3 pounds of bran 
may be issued in lieu of that quantity of grain. 

The commanding officer may, in his discretion, vary 
the proportions of the components of the ration (1 pound 
of grain, \ l / 2 pounds of hay, and 2 pounds of straw being 
taken as equivalents) and in the field may substitute 
other recognized articles of forage obtained locally, the 
variation or substitution not to exceed the money value of 
the components of the ration proper at the contract rates 
at time of change. 

25. Mounts are furnished by the quartermaster corps 
for mounted officers below the grade of major, if they so 
elect; if they provide their own mounts they will be paid 
$150.00 per year for one horse, and $200.00 per year for 
two horses. 

Officers of field rank will not be furnished mounts at 
government expense. 

26. The authorized private mounts of an officer will 
be foraged, stabled and shod by the Q. M. C. at the 
officer's regular post of duty, when he is on leave of 
absence or when he is on duty, the nature of which 



MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 13 

necessitates temporaiy separation from his mounts. The 
cost of grooming is not a proper charge against public 
funds. 

27. Forage is furnished to the following number of 
horses: 

Lieutenant General 4; Major General 3; Brigadier 
General 3; all other mounted officers 2. 

Motor Truck Transportation 

28. Motor trucks of one and one-half ton capacity have 
now been adopted for use on the line of communications. 
Eventually trucks will replace the mules and wagons in 
our field and combat trains, then take the place of draft 
horses in our field artillery. 

29. The first organization of trucks ever used in our 
army, was on the line of communications when our troops 
entered Mexico in March, 1916. 

30. The organization of Motor Truck Company: 

1 Truckmaster 1 Trumpeter messenger 

3 Assistant Truckmasters 28 Chauffeurs 

1 Machinist 27 Motor trucks 

1 Machinist helper 1 Repair truck 

1 Cook 5 Motor-cycles 

1 Watchman 

31. A ton and half truck should make an average of 
5 miles to the gallon of gasoline, and 125 miles to the 
gallon of oil used. This is for all kinds of field service. 

32. In a property book will be kept a descriptive list 
of all vehicles in a motor truck company, giving the 
quartermaster's number and the manufacturer's serial 
number of all machines and full particulars as to the 
equipment of each. 

In this book will also be recorded the personnel of 
the motor company, giving the name, assignment and 
length of service, of each person in the company, when 
and where first enlisted. 



14 MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 

Railroad Transportation 

33. For the transportation of troops by rail the fol- 
lowing equipment is authorized when available: 

For commissioned officers, standard sleeper, 3 to each 
section. 

For enlisted men, standard tourist sleepers, 3 to each 
section. 

For animals, Palace Arms Horse Cars, 18 animals to 
each car. 

For freight, standard box cars. 

For artillery guns and caissons and wagons, set up, 
flat cars. 

When standard equipment is not available troops will 
be transported in any kind of cars available. 

34. For preparing meals for troops on trains, baggage- 
cars are provided, in which is placed a kitchen-car equip- 
ment. If this equipment is not available, two field ranges, 
set up in boxes of dirt, in one baggage-car will be suffi- 
cient to prepare meals for four companies. 

The baggage-car thus equipped should be so placed 
in the train as to have two companies ahead and two in 
rear of the mess car. Meals should be served to the men 
in the various cars by mess attendants, thereby avoiding 
the congestion which would result if the men should go to 
the mess car for their meals. 

35. There are a limited number of kitchen car equip- 
ments owned by the Q. M. C., part of which are kept at 
St. Louis and part at San Francisco. The Pullman Car 
Co. also have a number of kitchen cars, but it is well to 
prepare for using field ranges for the regular kitchen car 
equipments are seldom obtainable. 

36. The authorized private mounts will be transported 
by the Q. M. C. for the officers changing station and for 
graduates of the U. S. Military Academy, reporting for 



MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 15 

duty with mounted organizations, subject to following 
restrictions: 

a. When expense does not exceed $100.00 for 
each horse transported. 

b. Valuation for shipment not to exceed $100.00. 

c. That horses are actually owned and will 
be used in public service at new station. 

d. Horses will be shipped from point of pur- 
chase to station of officer, provided he had no 
horse shipped on last change of station. 

e. Horses may be shipped to a remount depot 
or to any place in U. S. for safekeeping, when an 
officer is ordered for duty beyond the sea. 

f. Private mounts in excess of authorized allow- 
ance may be shipped on Government B/L provided 
cost of transportation is deposited with shipping 
quartermaster. 

37. Shipments by express, when in excess of cost by 
ordinary freight must be limited to emergencies and 
shipments of delicate instruments. 

38. Blanks required for making shipments of freight 
and passengers by rail are:

18 MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 

CHAPTER III 

Supplies 
Supplies for Troops in the Field 

41. The chief quartermaster of a field army, or other 
separate organized unit, will be responsible, under the 
direction of his commander, for the prompt and efficient 
supply of subsistence, clothing, fuel and other supplies 
for troops, and forage for animals, pertaining to the 
command. 

42. Method of Supply: All supplies including subsis- 
tence will, so far as practicable, be furnished from stock 
or by purchase, or both, by the designated base or other 
depot upon properly approved requisitions, requests, ration 
returns, etc., or purchase locally, by chief or other quarter- 
masters, or by requisitions or levies in the theatre of opera- 
tions, and in such manner as may be directed by the com- 
mander of the field army or other separate organized unit. 

43. Supply of troops from base depot and advanced 
depots. Requisitions for supplies required by units of a 
division should, unless otherwise directed by competent 
authority, be submitted periodically through proper chan- 
nels to the division quartermaster, and by him consolidated 
or not, as may be deemed the most expedient, and sent 
direct to the base depot for supply; supply" being made 
direct to the division, or to its units from the base depot 
or from the advance depot. 

44. Rations are called class Al supplies, when they are 
obtained from the post quartermaster in garrison and in 
the field from the quartermaster at the rail head or dis- 
tributing point. In either case the regimental quarter- 
master draws rations in bulk for the organizations or de- 
tachments of his regiment, daily or at such times and 
places as the division commander may designate, and 
immediately distribute them to the various organizations. 



MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 19 

45. The rations are obtained as follows. Each organi- 
zation submits ration return for stated periods. These are 
consolidated by the regimental quartermaster, approved 
by the commanding officer, and submitted to the issuing 
quartermaster who makes the issue and uses the ration 
return as voucher for dropping the supplies. 

46. Officers may be included on the ration return by 
name, but they are required to pay for rations drawn. 

47. In garrison and permanent camp, each organiza- 
tion is credited with money value of the rations, on its 
return for a certain period. At the end of this ration 
period, the organization is charged with the value of ra- 
tions drawn from the quartermaster during that period 
and paid balance, if any, in cash. 

When troops take the field or are ordered to concentra- 
tion camp, this system is suspended and rations are issued 
in kind. No money is paid for rations not drawn. 

48. The commander of field forces has wide latitude 
in prescribing the ration to be issued. It should always 
be based on the reserve ration using that in whole or in 
part, supplemented by such other articles as are procurable 
locally. 

In no case should the field ration be augmented to 
exceed in value the authorized garrison ration. 

49. The following table gives components of the vari- 
ous rations:

22 MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 

50. Subsistence Stores: In campaign accountability for 
subsistence stores terminates with their transfer to the 
divisions or other units quartermasters in front of the 
advanced depot keeping accountability on forms furnished 
by the Quartermaster Corps and in accordance with printed 
instructions thereon. Base depots or other sources of 
supply will account for subsistence stores on authorized 
forms now in use and in accordance with Army Regula- 
tions, Manual for the Subsistence Department, and instruc- 
tions printed on the forms. 

51. Field return of subsistence stores: The field return 
of subsistence stores (Field Form No. 1 Subsistence) is 
for use as a memorandum record when troops are in the 
field in time of war beyond the advanced depots and is 
intended for use by any quartermaster making issues to 
troops, and will be prepared and kept as follows: 

(a) It will be made up by the quartermaster and 
retained by him as a memorandum record subject to 
inspection at any time by proper authorities. When 
these returns, and vouchers thereto, become cumbersome 
and too bulky to be conveniently carried by the officer 
concerned, the books completed or filled up with vouchers 
thereto should be mailed to the Quartermaster General 
for storage and reference thereto when necessary. 

(b) When the items are too numerous to be entered on 
front, the reverse side of the form will be used for abstract- 
ing invoices for stores received (Field Form No. 2), or 
receipts for stores transferred (Field Form No. 2), and 
for stores received on Field Form No. 22. 

(c) The loss, destruction, or abandonment of any stores 
will be explained in column of remarks.

accountable officer. 



MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 23 

(e) All vouchers to the return must be numbered in 
one series. 

52. Way Bill and Transfer Slip (Field Form No. 2): 

The Way Bill and Transfer Slip is to be used when troops 
are in the field in time of war beyond the advanced depots, 
and is intended for use by any quartermaster transferring 
stores. 

53. It will be made up in triplicate, with carbon paper. 
The original (white) sheet will go forward with the stores 
to the consignee, signed by the consignor, as an invoice. 
The tissue sheet bearing the certificate of the shipping 
quartermaster (or his authorized deputy) that he has re- 
ceived the stores for shipment, will be retained by the con- 
signor as his receipt for the stores and subsequently for- 
warded with his return of subsistence stores to the Chief 
of the Quartermaster Corps or filed with his field return as 
the case may be. The triplicate (blue) sheet will be given 
to the shipping quartermaster, who will, upon delivery of 
the stores, obtain the consignee's receipt thereon. When 
stores are lost, destroyed, or abandoned while in transit, 
the quartermaster will fill in the upper certificate on the 
reverse side of the original (white) sheet, and make a 
memorandum of the loss on the reverse side of the tripli- 
cate (blue) sheet. The consignee will execute the lower 
certificate on the reverse side of the original (white) sheet, 
and file it with his field return or subsistence stores. 

54. Field Ration Return: The field Ration Return 
(Field Form No. 3) is to be used when troops are in the 
field in time of war beyond the advance depots and is for 
use by any quartermaster requiring rations or other sub- 
sistence stores. 

55. Bread is supplied troops in the field, when practi- 
cable, from field bakeries which are attached to divisions 
when in permanent camp, or to line of communica- 
tion when troops are campaigning. The bakeries produce 



24

fresh bread when required for immediate consumption 
and field bread when required for shipment, or when 
considerable time must elapse between baking and con- 
sumption. 

56. Bakery companies will be organized for war service 
at the rate of one for each division. A bakery company 
at war strength is divided into four sections of three units 
each. 

The sections are lettered A, B, C, D, and the units are 
numbered from 1 to 12. 

One section will supply bread for a brigade and one 
unit a war strength regiment of Infantry.

CHAPTER IV 

Property 

61. In publishing G. O. 39 W. D. 1915, it was the 
intention to prescribe a unit equipment, for each organiza- 
tion, which would contain every article of quartermaster 
property or supplies authorized for field service. 

62. The articles of the equipment should be drawn 
in bulk by the regimental quartermaster and issued by 
him to each organization. He receipts to the depot 
quartermaster issuing the supplies, takes them up on a 
field property return and distributes them to the various 
organizations. From each organization he obtains a 
receipt, not for the individual articles but for one equip- 
ment A, B, or C, complete. 

63. Thereafter when an article of the unit equipment 
becomes unserviceable it is taken to the regimental quarter- 
master and is replaced by a serviceable one. If lost, the 
organization commander submits to the quartermaster an 
approved survey, fixing responsibility, and obtains a ser- 
viceable article, 

Unserviceable articles turned in to the regimental 
quartermaster are disposed of by him as provided in A. R. 

64. Other property of the quartermaster corps: Ac- 
countability for other supplies and property of the Quarter- 
master Corps of the expendable class, such as stationery, 
blank books, memorandum books, scratch or memo, pads, 
duplicating and triplicating books, rulers, paper folders, 
veterinary medicines and dressings, horse and mule shoes, 
horseshoe nails, brooms (stable and corn), brushes, nails, 
lumber, paints, oils, wicks and other lamp and lantern parts, 
repair parts for harness, leather, repair parts for wagons, 
repair parts for auto trucks, hames, collars horse, bolts 
assorted, iron and steel assorted, hatchet, axe and other 



MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 29 

handles, twine, rope, whips, tongues and wheels, wagon, 
links, rivets and burrs, single and double trees, saddler 
materials consumed in making repairs, bow r s, wagon, 
screws, paper, wrapping and other supplies actually con- 
sumed in the maintenance and upkeep of troops in the 
field, fuel and forage, and clothing for issue to enlisted 
men, terminate with their transfer to the division or other 
organized unit. 

65. Officers making transfers of fuel and forage to divi- 
sions or other units will show on vouchers dropping same 
from their accountability the number of men for fuel and 
animals for forage. 

66. Quartermasters of divisions or other quartermasters 
making purchases of supplies and paying for same, will be 
required to account for same on property account (Q. M. C. 
Form No. 200), taking credit thereon for issues and 
transfers. 

67. Receipts for expendable supplies will be taken by 
the base or other depot or supply point on Q. M. C. Form 
No. 201, combination invoice and receipt, and same used 
as a voucher to property account and disposed of as directed 
herein. These supplies will not be invoiced to consignee, 
but a copy of the receipt for the supplies will be furnished 
him for his information. Clothing will be requisitioned 
for and receipted for when practicable on Q. M. C. Form 
No. 213, and this form when so used becomes a voucher 
to property account. If transfers of clothing are made in 
bulk to regimental or other quartermasters, receipts will be 
taken on Q. M. C. Form No. 201, and such quartermasters 
will either account for the clothing or furnish the officer 
making the transfer of same with completed receipts on 
Q. M. C. Form No. 213 showing issues to organizations. 
These receipts to be filed as sub-vouchers to voucher of 
officer making transfer. 



30 MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 

68. Supplies not expendable will, when supplied for use 
of troops in the field, be invoiced to the regimental, bat- 
talion, squadron, or other quartermaster to whom trans- 
ferred, and shall be accounted for by such officers in 
prescribed manner, and on prescribed forms. 

69. Quartermasters to whom supplies of the expendable 
class are issued for distribution, will be held responsible 
for the proper distribution thereof, and officers to whom 
such supplies are distributed will be held responsible for 
the proper application thereof. 

70. Method of accounting for property of the quarter- 
master corps other than subsistence stores: Q. M. C. Form 
No. 200 will be used for accounting for all property of 
the Quartermaster Corps (except subsistence stores). This 
form will be filed in a loose leaf binder furnished by the 
Chief of the Quartermaster Corps for the purpose. 

71. Articles accounted for in the property account 
should for convenience be arranged in groups as follows: 

(a) Clothing. 

(b) Equipage. 

(c) Other Quartermaster Supplies. 

72. Vouchers to property account: Vouchers covering 
transactions incident to the procurement or receipt of sup- 
plies and property are debit vouchers and vouchers cover- 
ing transactions incident to the issue, transfer, or other 
disposition of supplies and property are credit vouchers.

32 MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 

76. All property transactions occurring in or pertaining 
to a fiscal year should be closed on or as quickly as 
possible after June 30th each year, and the vouchers cover- 
ing same given serial numbers and posted to the property 
account to which they pertain, except in the case of 
vouchers unavoidably delayed for a considerable period 
after the close of the fiscal year in which transaction 
covered by them occurred. Such vouchers will be num- 
bered in the series for the new fiscal year.

and are condemned, they will not be sold locally, but will 
be shipped to a depot to be sold as old rags.

of the commanding officer, they have no material salable 
value. The certificate of expenditure submitted by the 
accountable officer and approved by the commanding officer 
should be supported by a certificate of a disinterested 
officer that the property has been destroyed in his presence.

Property in Hands of Militia When Mustered into 
Federal Service 

83. As soon as the militia are actually sworn into the 
service as volunteers they pass from the control of the 
State to that of the U. S. Thereafter the Federal 
Government will subsist, care, transport and have exclu- 
sive charge of them as volunteers. 

84. Each organization called forth preparatory to mus- 
ter in, at a late date, as U. S. Volunteers, will take with 
it to the mobilization camp all serviceable property (Fed- 
eral, State and organization) pertaining to the organization 
and suitable for field service. 

85. As soon as a regiment or other separate organiza- 
tion has been mustered into the service of the U. S., the 
mustering officer or his assistant, with a representative of 
the State, will inventory and inspect all property be- 
longing to the U. S. taken by such troops into Federal 
service. 

86. The Governor or his representative will invoice all 
articles of such U. S. property as pertains to the Quarter- 



60 MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 

master Corps, to the regimental Quartermaster. Any State 
property taken into the Federal service will be taken up by 
the Quartermaster, an inventory made by the mustering 
officer, a copy of such inventory being furnished to the 
Quartermaster General. 

CHAPTER V 

Finance 

88. Quartermasters of organizations and acting Quar- 
termasters are not required to be bonded. A line officer 
detailed for duty in the Quartermaster Corps is required 
to have a $10,000 bond. 

89. Usually the only money accountability required of 
organization Quartermasters is for funds necessary on a 
march, for purchasing forage, fuel, water, renting camp 
sites, and in some cases purchasing rations and engaging 
services of mechanics. 

90. The payment of troops and civilian employes is 
usually made by an officer of the Quartermaster Corps 
attached to Division or line of communications. 

91. Engagement of Services, Personal and Non- 
Personal: All services, personal and non-personal, required 
in connection with troops in the field will be obtained under 
authority of the commander of the Field Army or of a 
division commander, when required in connection with a 
division, or commander of the line of communication when 
required in connection with the line of communicaton and 
the base. 

92. Personal Services: All employments in positions 
having a classified status under Civil Service Rules and 
Regulations, such as clerks, stenographers and typewriters, 
typewriters, copyists, messengers, mechanics, engineers, 
firemen, civil engineers, superintendents of construction, 
draftsmen, superintendent of labor, wagonmasters, forage- 
masters, pack-masters, veterinarians, etc., must be reported 



MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 61 

to the Chief of the Quartermaster Corps at the end of the 
month in which hired. Report to show name, designation, 
rate of pay and date of hire. 

93. When employes filling positions having a classified 
status (as per paragraph 92) are separated from the ser- 
vice (by death, discharge, resignation or otherwise), names, 
designation, rate of pay, and date of separation will be 
reported to the Chief of the Quartermaster Corps at the 
end of the month in which the separation occurred. 

94. Non-Personal Services: Non-personal services con- 
sist of services procured under contract (not including 
employes hired under contract or oral agreement), under 
written proposal, and written acceptance and under oral 
agreement (open market). 

95. When making purchases in the field or in camp it 
is always well to get prices informally from all dealers 
that can be reached and this fact noted on face of voucher. 

96. However, purchases without inviting competition 
are authorized in the following cases: 

(a) When cost of supplies does not exceed $500. 

(b) In an emergency when there is not time for invit- 
ing competition. 

(c) When exceptional articles are required or prices 
are fixed. 

97. In all other cases circular to bidders should be 
sent out inviting bids in writing, Q. M. C., form 119. For 
advertising in newspapers the written authority of the 
Secretary of War is necessary, for the Revised Statutes 
prohibit publishing public advertisement in any newspaper 
except by written authority from the head of the Depart- 
ment. 

98. A guaranty must be furnished with each bid when 
the value of supplies bid on exceeds $500. In lieu of 
written guaranty a certified check for at least 15% of 
amount of the bid may be furnished. The guaranty or 



62 MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 

check is held as security that the bidder will enter into 
contract if awarded supplies offered, or in case no formal 
contract is required, that supplies are delivered in accord- 
ance with terms of bid. 

99. Bonds must be furnished in all cases where the 
value of the supplies to be delivered under a contract is 
$5,000 or more and the time within which delivery is to be 
made is more than sixty days. In other cases it is optional 
with the Quartermaster. A bond is intended to protect 
the government in case the contractor fails to fulfill the 
terms of his contract. 

100. Payment for supplies or services in a foreign 
country should be in U. S. currency, this to avoid question 
of exchange. By all means get receipts in terms of U. S. 
currency, even should it be necessary to handle the foreign 
coin to make change. 

101. Civilian employes traveling under competent or- 
ders will be allowed reimbursement for ticket, over short- 
est usually traveled route, transfers to and from railroad 
station and for sleeping car ticket. 

102. Reimbursement for meals, including tips, will not 
exceed $4.50, or in lieu of reimbursement for meals and 
tips, civilian employes, when their orders so prescribe, 
may be allowed a flat per diem allowance not exceeding 
four dollars when traveling and when on duty for the first 
thirty days at places designated in their orders for per- 
formance of temporary duty, except when traveling on 
army transports or when accompanying troops in field in 
time of war. 

103. Eight hours shall constitute a day's work for all 
mechanics, laborers, and workmen employed by the 
Q. M. C., except (a) crews of vessels, (b) employes with 
wagon and truck trains engaged in field service, (c) cooks, 
overseers of laborers. Exceptions in case of others on 
account of exigencies of the service must be promptly 
reported. 



MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 63 

104. Payment for a full calendar month's service with- 
out regard to number of days: 

When service commences on an intermediate day of the 
month, 30 days will be assumed as the length of the month, 
whatever be the number of days therein. 

When service terminates on an intermediate day of the 
month, the actual number of days during which service 
was rendered in that calendar month will- be allowed. 

Service commencing in February will be calculated as 
though the month contained 30 days. When services com- 
mence February 28, 3 days will be allowed in that month. 

If service commences on 31st day of any month, pay- 
ment will not be made for that day. 

105. Enlisted men will not be given extra duty pay 
while receiving 20% increase for foreign service or in time 
of war. 

106. In lieu of transportation and subsistence to his 
home a discharged soldier may, if he so elects, receive 
two (2) cents a mile, except for sea travel, from the place 
of his discharge to the place of his enlistment. 

107. A fifty-dollar reward will be paid to any civil 
officer or civilian for the apprehension and delivery of a 
deserter from the military service or for the return of an 
escaped military prisoner. (See Par. 120, A. R.) 

108. An officer receiving commutation for his heat 
allowance is not permitted to purchase fuel from the 
Q. M. C. at contract price.

MANUAL FOR QUARTERMASTERS 81 

132. Water Approximate daily requirements: 
1 gallon per man on march. 

5 gallons per man in camp. 

6 to 10 gallons per animal on march and camp. 
(The above figures apply to water taken from streams, 

where animals are watered at the streams, and cooking 
water carried. In estimating the daily supply for perma- 
nent or semipermanent camps, where water is piped to 
kitchens, bath houses, etc., the requirements will be 25 to 
30 gallons per man and 10 to 15 gallons per animal, de- 
pending on climatic conditions.) 

Estimating quantity of water in stream: 

B X D X V X 10,800 = gallons in 24 hours. B = average 
width, D = average depth, V = average velocity (all in 
feet).
