6. Information, Orders, etc

When a Medical Officer is taking over from a R.M.O., either temporarily (as for leave or sickness), or when posted to a unit, he will receive from his predecessor a complete file of Medical Corps Orders, with the instructions, pamphlets, etc., which have been issued with them. He will give a receipt for these, and this receipt will be forwarded by the outgoing R.M.O. to the A.D.M.S. This file of Medical Corps Orders will be kept in Field Medical Pannier, No. 2.

Copies of D.R.O., C.R.O., A.R.O. and G.R.O. may be seen in the Orderly Boom of the unit at any time, and R.M.Os. should extract those Orders affecting their duties, supplies, etc.

Copies of books such as King's Regulations, Field Service Regulations, Part II., may also be seen in the Orderly Boom.

Each R M.O. should be provided with

" R.A.M.C. Training Manual."

"Sanitation in War," by Major P. S. Lelean, C.B. R.A.M.C.

"Hints for R.M.Os. of the Territorial Force," by Captain M. F. Grant, R.A.M.C.
