Note.-Erasures and alterations of entries are prohibited. Regular and extra issues
will be distinguished on the receipt roll. Each signature, whether written by the soldier or
acknowledge by mark, must be witnessed. Vacant space will be filled by a cypher. Mounted
men may receive one pair of “boots” and two pairs of “bootees,” instead of four pairs of bootees.
As the metallic shoulder scales, letters, numbers, castles, and shells and flames
will last for many years, they will be borned on the returns as company property, in the same
manner as are sashes, knapsacks and straps, haversacks, canteens and straps, and other articles
of camp and garrison equipage, and will be charged to the soldier only when lost or destroyed through neglect.
