The numbers placed in parentheses ( ) opposite each article enumerated in paragraphs 2,3,4,5, and 6 of this indorsement are, in the opinion of the Bureau, the least number of articles which an officer on sea duty requires in order to be at all times ready for service. Some have many more articles than the numbers given in the lists. All officers must be provided at all times with clothing suitable for hot and cold climates and in sufficient quantities to permit them to go for long periods without having clothing washed.

“The Bureau is unable to estimate the value of the articles lost by any officer and suggests that the statement of the officers who have submitted claims be accepted. The inclosed price lists, marked A, B, and C, of reputable tailors and outfitters for officers are a guide by which to estimate the value of the articles lost.
