SECTION I
GENERAL
1. MILITARY GOVERNMENT-CIVIL AFFAIRS.
,      a. Military Government. The term “military gov­ernment” is used in this manual to describe the supreme authority exercised by an armed force over the larids, property, and the inhabitants of enemy territory, or allied or domestic territory recovered from enemy occupation, or from rebels treated as belligerents. It is exercised when an armed force has occupied such territory, whether by force or by agreement, and has substituted its authority for that of the sovereign or a previous government. Sovereignty is not transferred by reason of occupation, but the right of control passes to the occupying force, limited only by inter- national law and custom. The theater commander bears full responsibility for military government. He iy, thcre­for?, usually designated as military governor, but may delegate both his authority and title to a subordinate commander.
b.
Occupied Territory. The term “occupied terri­tory” is used to mean any area in which military govern­ment is cxerciscd by an armed force. It does not include territory in which an armed force is located but has not assumed supreme authority.

c.
Civil Affairs. The term “civil aflairs” is used to describe the activities of the government of the occupied area and of the inhabitants of sucl~ an arca cxccpt those of an organized military character. “Civil affairs control” describes the supervision of the activities of civilians by an armed force, by military government, or otherwise. The term “civil affairs oflkers” designates the military officers, who, under the military govcmor, are engngcd in the con­trol of civilians.


1
2.
MILITARY CONTROL BY AGREEM.ENT OR CON. VENTION. An armed fo?ce may exercik control over civilians to a lesser degree than under military government through grant of, or agreement with, the recognized gov­crnment of the territory in which the force is located, usually made prior to entering the territory, but subject to modification by the government and the military com­mander as circumstances require. In such casts military necessity has not required the assumption of supreme authority by the armed forces, but limited control over civilians is exercised in accord with these grants, or agree­mcnts and the territory is not considered reoccupied.” While this manual is primarily intended as a guide to military government, some of the principles set forth may be applied in these other situations as circumstances indicate.

3.
OCCASION FOR MILITARY GOVERNMENT. Mili­tary government must be established either by reason of military ‘necessity as a right under international law, or as an obligation under international law. In this connection, attention should be given to the following considerations:


a.
Military necessity may require an armed force to establish military govcrnmcnt to assist in the accomplish­ment’ of its military objective. The right in such cases is rccognizcd by international law.

b.
As the military occupatibn of enemy territory suspends the operation 01 the enemy’s civil government, it is an obligation under international law for the occupying force to exorcise the functions of civil government in the restora­tion and maintcnancc of public order. Military govcm­ment is the organization which eserciscs these functions. An armed force in territory other than that of an enemy likewise has the duty of establishing military government when the government thereof is absent or unable to maintain order,

c.
These reasons, concurrently as well as singly, may dictate the establishment of military govcrnmcnt.

d.
Military govcrnmcnt is not confined to belligerent occupation. Military necessity may require its establish­


ment in such4 areas as the following, with or without the
 consent of the existing or a prior government:
 
(1)
Allied or neutral territory which has been dominntcd or occupied by the enemy.

(2)
Technically neutral or allied territory actually un­,friendly or hostile.


(3 ) Genuinely allied or neutral territory, the occupation of which is essential to a military operation.
(4) Domestic territory recovered from enemy OCCUR­tion or from rebels treated as belligcrcnts.
4.
OBJECT OF CONTROL. The object of civil nfI’airs control through military government is to assist military operations, to further national politics, and to fulfill the obligation of the occupying forces under intcrnntional law. This assistance is rendered by maintaining order, promoting security of ‘the occupying forces, prcvcnting intcrfcrcnce with military operations, reducing active or passive snbo­tage, relieving combat troops of civil administration, and mobilizing local resources in aid of military objectives and carrying out governmental policies of the ZJnitccl States which usually arc predetermined. Furlhcr, the cficicnt conduct of a military govcrnmcnt as a part of one militxry operation will promote -military and political objcctivos in connection with future operations.

5.
DEGREE OF CONTROL, The occupz~~~t may clclrwcl and enforce from the inhabitants of the occupied arca such obedience as may be necessary for the p~~rpos~~s of wr, the maintenance of law and order, and the prolxr :Iclnrin­istration of the area under the unusual circurnstnnccs of hostile occupation. In return for such obc~dkntx~, the *’ inhabitants should be granted freedom from all ~~tmo~w sary or unwarranted intcrfcxcncc with their individlr:\l liberty and property rights. Under military govrrn~lrt:nt the degree of control maintained by thr: occul)yin~ BREWS varies grcakly according to the rclatinns which l\;tv(! l>r(q*i­ously existed between the govermncnt of eho o(:(:ul)yillg forces and the government of the territory occul)ic:d, rhea


existing attitude of oflicials and inhabitants, the project&d military operations, and k~ent military, political, eco. nomic and other pertinent circumstances. In the territory of an enemy, rigid control of civil affairs is necessary if the bbjectives of military government are to be achieved. In neutral, allied, or domestic territory, sufficient cooperation from the officials and inhabitants may be obtained to permit greater latitude for action by local officials under broad policies and general supervision of the occupying forces, particularly in those governmental fields lcast im­
’      portant to the military forces in current or pending opera­tions! In any territory, as conditions approach normal, the control exercised by a military government will be relaxed, the supervision of the occupying force will become less direct, and supreme authority will finally be released to a recognized sovereign power.
I I 6. PERIOD OF CONTROL. The period of time during / which military government or civil affairs control is main- tained will vary, depending on whether military operations arc continuing, the USC or nonuse of the area as a base for future operations, whether the territory is bclligercnt or otherwise, the degree of cooperation of the inhabitants, the national policy regarding the futilre position of the terri­tory, and other military and political considerations. As long as military opcrntions continue, some degree of control will be ncccssary. Military govcrnmknt may etiend beyond such operations until it nchicves the ends of national policy toward which the operations arc directed.
7, AUTHORITY FOR CONTROL. Military government is exercised by virtue of and in accordance with rules of international, law. Authority for the exercise of such con­trol is derived from the mere fact of occupation or from some form of agreement such as an armistice, a convention,
, or a treaty. The more important of these rules are set 1 forth in the military’ manuals of the leading civilized 1 countries and ,in international treaties, such as the Hague i Convention No. IV, i907 (Annex Sec. III). The rules
I
/      4 Which govern the armed forces of the United States arc set forth in the War Department manual FM 27-10. While the Hcgue rules apply legally only to enemy tcrd­tory, as a matter of policy they arc gcncrally applied to other territories occupied by United States ~OIYXS.
8.
EXERCISE OF CONTROL A COMMAND RESPONSI­BILITY. The exercise of civil affairs control is a c~nmmnd responsibility. In occupied territory the commander, by virtue of his position, has supreme legislative, osccutivc, and judicial authoritjr, limited only by the laws and cus­toms of war and by directives from higher authority.

9.
     GENERAL PRINCIPLES AND POLICIES IN THE CONDUCT OF CIVIL AFFAIRS. *


a.
Military Necessity. The first consideration at all times is the prosecution of the military operation to a suc- cessful conclusion. Military necessity is the primary undcr­lying principle for the conduct of militq governmcnt. So long as the operation continues, it is the duty of thr commanding officer to exercise such control and to t&c. such steps in relation to the civil population as will attaiu the paramount objective.

b.
Supremacy of Commanding Officer. It follows from the basic principle of military necessity that tllc theater commander must always have full rcsponsibilit) for military government,

c.
Civil Affairs Jurisdiction. The paramount illtt:rrst of the combat ofker is in military operations. Thc: para­mount interest of the civil affairs of?iccr is in dealing \yitl] civilian relationships of concern to the co~nmancl~~~. sut+ interest will be expressed in restoring law and o&r :mcl in returning to the civilian population certain’ facilities ~)1: services and restoring living conditions to norm:ll, ins;crf:lr as SUCK activities will not tend to intcrfcrc with military operations. Whether intcrfcrcncc with military oprr:~.ti(>lls


will  result shall  bc dctcrmincd  by  the  couunanding  of&:(ar  
after  giving  consideration  to  the  rclcornnlcnd3tiolls  of  lljs  
combat  and  civil  affairs  oficcrs.  

s
\
d. Economy of Personnel. Since cficicnt control of the civilian population ancl mobilizntion Of local civiliall manp~wcr will lessen the need for garrison ~OPXS,adequate civil affairs personnel will in the hlg lWl prom an Won. omy. The stimulation and sUpCrViSi011 Of production and use of local resources will lilccwise make savings in Shippi~~g and q~ply. All plans and practices Of military govern. ment should be adopted with this in view 2nd at lcast the minimum necessary number of Amy and Navy personnel trained in civil affairs bc providccl., The duties of civil
e      affairs officers should bc conlincd whcrcvcr possible to supervision.
e.
Flexibility. The administration of civil aPTairs bvill vary widely in different arcas dcpcncling Up011 III:UIY hctoq including the nlilitary forces present and their disl>osition, the ‘structure of the native governmnt, the geography of the arca, ‘the economic instructions, tl~ chnractcristics of the pcoplc and their officials, the dcgrcc of control which may be necessary, the prcscncc or nbs~r~c of civilian of& cials, the dcgrce of destruction of 10~~1 resources, the pcrson- nel available, and the basic policies to be fdlow~d, includ­ing the contcmplatcd post-war position of the territory. It will probably vary widely everl in the ~nme territory from one’ tirnc to another as when the thrcnt of combat deklines or ceases. It follo\vs that the utmost flexibility must be provided in tlw l&ul~ and in the ccmduct of civil affairs.

f.
Continuity of Policy, Tllc ndministtxtion of civil affairs in occupied territory should bc so l~lnnncd and conducted that a rcasonnblc dcgrcc of continuity of policy and pcrsonncl will result. PrCqucllt clmngcs of policies and orders will injure the cflectivcncss and prcstigc of the administration, while frcqu&t chan~cs of pcrsonncl Will. dcprivc the occupying forces of the services of ofikcrs when they hnvc bccornc of grcatcst v&c.

g.
Treatment of Population. (11 Intrrnntinnnl law rcquircs and military ncccssity cliclntcs just and rcasonablc trcstnmt of the inhabitants of occupied territory to mini­mize their bclligcrcncy and obtain their coolxmtion. The


Cooperation of the inhabitants, where it can be sccurcd, is of direct advantage to the occupying forces in maintaining public order and accomplishing the objective of military government. While the welfare of the inhabitants ~110dd be considered also for humane reasons and should bc safc- guarded as far as military requirements permit, the primary purposes of just trentincnt are to fncilitatc the military operations and to meet obligations imposed by law, Proper treatment will be of direct benefit to the occupying forces in preventing chaos, promoting order, and in the procurc­ment of labor, services, and supplies. It will have 3 favorable influence upon the present and future attitude of the population toward the United States and its allies. It will provide incentive to populations of other tcrritorics to accept, our future occupation. Such a policy, liowcvcr, should not affect the imposition of such restrictive or punitive measures as may be necessary to accomplish the objectives of military government in any arca, but cspccially in one in which the population is aggrcsxivcly hostile and engages in active and passive sabotage.
(21 The treatment of the population of any occupied territory will vary, depending upon the nttitudcs of the people toward the occupying forces; their dcgrcc of coopcr- ation with these forces; the dcgrcc of their industrial, ec,onomic, political and moral deveIopment; and the political, diplomatic, and military policy of our govcrmncnt toward the government of the territory occupiccl. T’hc civil affairs officers should bccomc fully informed conccrl1­ing the local population and their customs, institutions and attitudes, and should direct military control in the light of the local situation and requircrncnts. Xn consid(*ring tll(: treatment of populations in occupied areas> tllc f&~ing factors should be taken into account:
Ia 1 Generally, Icss restrictive mcnsurcs wiII hc nrc(~ss:lq in dealing with nationals of friendly or nonllostilc countricbs than with nationals of enemy countries.
(b) The taking of hostages, the imposition of coIlectiv(: fines, or the carrying out of reprisals become military n~ccs­sities in some situatjons though such mcn~~res sh~~~~ld on13
5gll OF?“.- 48 .-^...... :< 7 be taken as an unavoidable last resort t0 illduCC a hostile population to desist from unlawful practices. Such actions are usually an indication of weakness of the occupying forces and of ineffective control of the inhabitants. Care­ful consideration should be given to the question of de­termining whether such devices will serve as a deterrent or aggravate an already difficult situation. (See FM 27-10.)
(c)
Force may be used to the extent ncccssary to subdue those who resist the authority of military government or to prevent the escape of prisoners OS ~WSO~XT suspected of crime. Persons accused are entitled to a fair trial before the imposition of punishment. The theater commander has the power to provide immediate trial, when an example is necessary. Sentences of military courts should be pro­portionate to the oflense and the need for a deterrent effect. The maximum punishment s110ul~l not be awarded automatically. The nature of sentences to be imposed and whether they should be carried out in public, depends in

h.
Retention of Existing LaHis, Cwstoms, and Politi. Cal Subdivisions. Local officials and inhabitants of an occupied territory are familiar with its laws, customs,’ and institutions. To avoid confusion and tb promote simplicity of administration, it is advisable that local laws, customs, and institutions of government be rctaincd, except where they conFlict with the aims of military govcmmcnt or are inimical to its best intcrcsts. In gcncral, it is unwise to impose upon occupied territory tha laws and customs of another people. Any ntecmptcd changes or rclorms con­trary to local custom may result in devclopmcnt of active or passive resistance ancl thckby handicq the operation of military government. For similar reasons it is advisable, if possible, to retain existing territorial divisions and sub­divisions. Laws and customs in one political division of a country may differ widely froln those in another and the inhabitants therefore may be accustomed to the dccentrali­


part  upon  the  customs  and  habits  of  the  population  and  
the  types  of  punishment  which  have  been  found  most  
effective  in  the  particular  locality.  

zation of governmental authority which UN~Y l~arallels
such divisions.
i. Retention of local Government Departments and
Officials. (1) Of3[ices which arc unnecessary or detri­
mental to military government will be temporarily discon­
tinued or suspended by the military commander as military
governor. 111 some areas this fixay bc the cast with entire
departments or bureaus of the government.

(2)
Such legislative bodies as are still in csistcncc will
usually be suspended. Supreme legislative power is vcstcd
in the commanding officer in the theater of opcratioqs.


(3)
Usually it will be necessary to remove high ranking political officials from office. This action will include the removal of the nominal and actual heads of the national government, cabinet ministers, and the heads of principal political divisions. No permanent appointments to SUCK positions should be made by the military governor without approval of higher authority ,becnuse of the political impli­cations of such appointments. Wliilc mcmbcrship in un­friendly partisan organizations or political parties may not by itself be cause for removal, such o&Gals as have b~cn active Ieadcrs of such organizations will ordinarily not lx retained in oflicc, nor will other officials who prove to bc unreliable or untrustworthy. Willful failure of retained local’ oficials to perform their duties satisfnctc~rily should be regarded as a. serious offcnsc against the nlilit:\rY


government.
’ (4) So far as practicable, subordinntc nflicials and (qn­
'      1doyCeS Of the lOCd govcrnmcnt should lx: rctainccl in tllcil offices and made responsible for the prqxr disc*llnrK(> trl their duties, subject to the direction and sl~l)(~rvisitru of civil affairs personnel.
(5) In some areas the native popu1~~tio1~ nl;t)+ have h:ul very limited participation in govcrnntcnl: ~x:~:;~~IsI: of 1~1~ domination of a foreign power. In such arcas civil &i&Is may have fled when invasion takes p~nct:, or it n,;ty I)(> inexpedient or unsafe for them to continua in oflice, (:voI, if they rem&n. In territories of this sort it nl;iy 1)(~(~01111~ necessary for military government t0 train nntivc personnel to -tal<e over certain positions.
(6)
Civil affairs pcrsonncl ~h0~1d CLS far L~S prnctical& deal with the inhabitants of occupied territory through such o~~ccrs aIld employc~ of the local ~o~rnrr~nt ‘~1s arc retained or appointed. FVhcn an of&in1 is rcmovcd, a replacement should be sought from among the inhabitants who by training and experience is qualified to take over the duties of the office. In the solcction of ofkinls, careful consideration should be given to their reliability, their willingness to cooperate with the military govcrnnrent, their positions in the community, as well as their other qunlifica­tions for the particular position. Appointments from a polkical faction or clique, regardless of their friendly sentiment, should be avoided, e?;ccpt in unusunl circum­stances. In some circumstances it may bc detcrmincd that the duties of the position cw bcttcr be pcrforrncd by a representative of the military ~ovcrmncnt.

(7)
Neither local political personalities nor organized political groups, howcvcr sound in scntimcnt, should have any part in determining the politics of the military ,govcrn­ment. Civil affairs ofhccrs should avoicl any cOuniiitmcnts to, or negotiations with, any local l~olitical clcmcnts cxccpt by directions from higher authority.

(8)
So far as possible, civil affairs oflicers should confine themsclvcs to supervision and avoid assumption of the duties of the operating head of a political subdivision or of a department of govcrnmcnt.

(9)
It may be advisable to provide protection for per­sons who continue in, or arc assigned to, local public ofice. They may bc accused of disloyalty by some inhnbitants of the area. Their persons and property may be thrcntcncd or endangcrecl.


( 10 1 Civil affairs ofllccrs and pcrsnnncl, as rcprcscnta- tives of the Unitccl States govcrnmcnt, sl~o~~lcl keep their relations with local oficinls and inhabitants ori a strictly official basis, avoiding unofficial social rclntionships. All personal favors or gifts which may bc on’cred .by civilians arc to be rcfuscd unless authorized by hi&r authority,
]. PeliQ;ical Prisoners. Persons imprisoned by tllc p”C­v&s government, for political or racial rcaSotXi only, should be released after investigation, unless directed othcrwisc by
higher  authority,  with  warning  that  political  activity  on  
their  part,  during  the  period  of  military  government,  will  
not  be tolerated.  
k.  Economics.  The  basic  economic  policy  of  Unitcrcl  

States military government is twofold: first, to revive cco­nomic life and stimulate production in order to reduce to a minimum the needs of the arca for United States and ‘allied assistance and to dcvclop the arcn as a source of supply for further operations, and second, to USC avnilnble goods and services as efficiently as possible for the satis­faction of military and civilian needs. Corollaries of this
basic policy include the following:
( 1 1 An equitable distribution of ncccssities, such as food, fuel, medicine, and clothing, should be instituted as quickly as possible. To this end it will be necessary to reestablish, to some degree at least, public utilities, transportation, communications, and trade. It will often bc ncccssnry to enforce controls, which may or may not be the same as those in effect belorc occupation, over various aslxcts of economic life, including prices; over marketing by ration­ing, by measures to bring hoarded goods out of hiding, and by suppression of black markets; over imports and czports; over money and banking. The reestablishment of corn-­munications $411 normally require the instituting of cxnsor­ship. At times military govermncnts will l;xvc to engage actively in some types of economic activitv in ot&r to assure that the armed forces and the populn~ion rcrcive at least a minimum of ndcessnry goods and scrviccxs.
(2) Such plans as may bc practicable should I~(> Inid in advance for the resumption of production, csl3rci:rlly in agriculture, fishing, and manufncturc, but also in mini~l~, forestry and the service traclcs. Prclilllirlilry decisions: niust: be reached as to which types of economic activity :\rc nlnsl important. Where military occulxl.tion is rf~~~:t.(~~l tll~~s~~ plans must bc carefully chcclcccl to dctcrmin(: wll:ll Il\()di{j­cations are necessary cspccinlly in view of d;un;~g(: dent: to
11
facilities. In most cases1 it will be IFX~SS~~~ to make rapid surveys of usable facilities and of undcvcloped resources &fore rehabilitation plans can be completed.
(3) Steps must be taken to put into immediate effect plans for the tehabilitation of production. In order to provide minimum military and civilian supplies it may be necessary to provide farmers and manufacturers with essen­tial equipment and materials. Labor SUPPLY rlmst bc pro- vided for necessary activities. It will be necessary to prevent abnormal wage increases, insure regular and adequate hours of work and control labor organizations. Steps should be taken to meet the most pressing needs, in some cases by making available United States or allied ma.terial immediately upon occupation. Priorities should be established for the use of scarce items, and in some cases to allocate particular material to specific uses. Most in­dustries will need supervision, and some may need assist­ance in management, especially in the early days. In enemy territory it may be advisable to provide skilled man­agers to replace those who may have fled or who do not cooperate sufficiently with the occupying forces.
1. Health. Protection of the health of the occupying foyces as well as humanitarian reasons determine the policy of safeguarding and improving the health of the population in occupied territory. Dead must be buried; sanitary dis­posal of sewage, garbage and rcfusc organized; water supply kept from pollution; food inspection established; necessary insect control “instituted and other steps tnkcn to provide precautions against the spread of disease. Such medical care for civilians as may be practicable should be provided.
m.
Respect for Religious Customs and Organiza­tions. International law requires that religious convictions and practices bc respected, Therefore, places of religious worship should not be closed unless necessary as a security or sanitary measure.

n.
‘biscriminatory Laws. Laws which cliscriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, or political opinions should be annulled as ihe situation permits. However, the prac­


12
tic& of such customs or the observance of such traditions as do not outrage civilized concepts may be permitted.
o.
Speech and Press. To the extent that military in­terests are not prejudiced, freedom of speech and press should be maintained or instituted.

p.
Archives and Records. Archives and records, both current and historical, of all branches of the government of the occupied territory are of immediate and continuing use to military government. It is therefore esscntinl to seize and protect such archives and records.

g.
Mail and Documents. Mail and documents in large quantities will often be found in post offices or other central communications points. As this represents a SOU~CC’ of valuable intelligence information it should be the policy to seize and protect such material as well as to expcditc its delivery to proper censorship examination stations.


rr Shrines and Art. It is the policy of the United States, except where military necessity makes it impossible, to preserve all historical and cultural monuments and works, religious shrines and objects of art.

SECTION II CIVIL AFFAIRS RESPONSIBILITIES
10. DIVISION Oi RESPONSIBILITY BETWEEN ARMY AND NAVY. Responsibility of the Army and Navy for the control of civil &airs in occupied arcas will bc dc­termined by, the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United St&s Army and Navy or by the Combined Chiefs of Stnfl of thr United States and one or more of its allies, depending upon the nature of the operation. In general, it is expected that the responsibility in continental areas will bc with tlrc Army, while the control, of civil affairs in island areas and in some ports and other areas contiguous to the sea will be delegated to the Navy. This is not a fixed rule OI principle as it may be advisable to assign to the Army the control of certain island arcas and ports. In such areas naval civil affairs officers may be assigned to the stafls of army commanders, either to assist in civil affairs control or to act as liaison between the two branches of the service. The Navy may control, temporarily at least, iskind areas which present many of the complexities of the larger land areas, or it may participate in land occupations through its operations in ports or on inland waterways. Where there is naval control of civil aff;tirS, ZlrXll)' Officers may serve with naval commanders in order to facilitate an ultimate transfer of the area from the Navy to the Army. When available, rqualified naval civil affairs officers should be assigned to regular civil affairs duties with army civil affairs organizations.
11. CONDITIONS LIKELY TO BE MET IN OCCUPIED TERRITORIES. The many and varied tasks involved in civil affairs control may have to be performed under the most diflicult circumstances. In most occupied territories one or more of the following conditions may exist in varying degrees. Civil administration may have broken down wholly or in part, Oficinls may have fled or have been deposed or be unreliable. There may be rioting, looting, or other forms of disorder, particularly if the local police force , has disintegrated. Agriculture and industry may have been prostrated or wrcckcd. Economic life may have been reshaped to serve a “new order” or disrupted by the “scorched earth” policy of a retreating enemy. There may be serious shortages of foodstuG and other csscntial materials. ’ If the area has been fought over or bombed, widespread destruction of buildings and other installations, public utilities, transportation and comnnmicntion facilities, and harbors may bc nnticjpntcd. Lnrgc numbers of lxoplc may be homeless. Many will be unemployed and without means of support until orderly proccsscs are rcstorcd. The enemy may have brought in large numbers of forced labor­ers fram distant areas, who will clcspcratcly scclc rcpatria- &on. There may be acute shortngcs of professional pcr­sonnel, such as doctors, lawyers, engineers, and other Plies may have been polluted. Medical supplies may have
specialists.  Hospitals  and  other  institutions  may  have  been  
destroyed.  The  wounded  may  have  rcccivecl  little  or  no  
attention.  The  dead  may  remain  unburied.  Water  sup  

been reduced to the vanishing point. The health and
morale of the population may have been undermined.
There may be few facilities to prevent the spread of pesti­
lence from cities and concentration camps.
12. FUNCTIONS OF CiVlL AFFAIRS OFFICERS. The chief function of the civil affairs officers during hostilities is to further the mission of the combat forces in every way possible. As areas are successively occupiFd he will assist by controlling the civil population so that it will not inter­fere with military operations. I-Ie will help reconstitute civil administration SO that local rcsourccs in manpower and in strategic material may be utilized to further military operations as authorized by the laws of war. His task may embrace a wide variety of activities, since the responsi­bilities of his commanding oficcr may range all the way from controlling a few simple functions of government in a small isolated rural region or a primitive island or group of islands, to controlling the many and complex functions of government in a large, densely populated, industrialized, continental area. In the occupation of sucli territories for a considerable period of time, the civil aflairs oficcr will in most cases be concerned with the following and other activities :
a. Political Government and Administration. TllC supervision, or even, in rare instances, the actual adminis­tration of the chief political of&s of the govcrnmcnt, such as, for example, the offices of the chief exccutivc, ministers, cabinet oflicers, secretariats, and other high ranking cxccu­
j     tive or administrative oficials on the national, provincial, or municipal levels.
b. Maintenance of Law and Order. The prcpara­tion, issuance, and enforcement of proclamations and ordinances regulating the conduct of the inhabitants; rc­establishment of the old police force or the creation of a new one, sul~l~lcmcntccl by military police, marines or shorq patrol; prevention, detection and prosecution of crime; maintcnancc OS public order and security of persons and property; regulation of relations between our forces

Locql courts ,concerned with litigation and other lc@ matters among Civilians are under the supervision of civil nll’airs officers, Such matters involving civilians and mcmbcrs of the armed forces arc also of primary concern to the civil affairs ofi. cers. Matters within the jurisdiction of courts martial are of no concern to civil aflairs oflkers.
d.
Civilian Defense. The supervision and strengthen. ing of existing local organizations, or the creation of new ones, for civilian dcfcnse SO as to provide for air-raid warnings, blackouts, shelters, fire fighting, Casualty services, emergency medical cart for civilians, evacuation, dcmoli­tion, rehabilitation, and other nctivitics to rclicve the occu­pying forces of as much responsibility for Civilians as possible in thi: cvcnt of boinbing, shell fire, 01’ other military operations.

g.
Censorrhip. Censorship of Civilian co~mtiunicntiolls is cffcctcd in order to nccon~plisl~ two objcctks; the pro­tection of security, both military and civilian; :md the obtaining of intelligence information. It will norru:~lly bc established in the very earliest phnscs d c.ontinuc throughout the period of occupation. Thus, its operation by civil affairs will require close liaisoii with the milit:2ry intelligence staff for the area from whom ccnsorshil~ policic>s and directives emanate.

a.
The Civil Affairs Division, in the OJXCC of the Chkf of Stafl, informs and advises the Sccrctnry of War 0x1 all matters within the purview of the War Dl:partmcnt othol than those of a strictly military nature in XWLS occupied as a result of military operations. This Division has as its responsibility the formulation of broad War Dclxu?mcnt policies with regard to military govermncnt, and the plan­ning and coordination of civil affairs in nrcns occupied as a result of joint Army and Navy operations. Under gcn­era1 policies formulated by the Civil ARairs Division of the War Department, the selection and training of p~rson~n~~l for civil affairs is conducted under the sup~~rvision of thr Provost Marshal Gcncral.

b.
The Ofice fdr Occupied Arcas, part of the O&x of the Chief of Naval Operations, is charged with the planning, training of personnel, and preparation of materials for mili­tary government in areas of paramount naval intcrcst, and in coordination with the War Department in arcas of joint interest.

tional  and territorial.  
60:110FI~..--4!~~~  23  

a. II1      the Opr~xtionnl type, C0nilllalldCrS Of cC)r!ht units
or of nlilitary administrative arcas arc responsible for civil affairs within their respective zOXlCS Of operation or areas; and the relationship of civil affairs Ofkr~ of 011~ echelon to civil affairs officers of a higher or IWVW cchclon are those prescribccl for staff officdrs in the aplxopiatc manuals. The chain of civil affairs control COnfOrlnS to the opera­tional or administrative ch:tin of command.
be In the territorial form, a separntc civil &airs organiza­lion is created under the direct C0Illlll:llld Of thO hater commander, or under a subordinntc CO111111:IIldC1’. Under this form, the chief civil aflairs of%lcer Of :1 territory is responsible to the military governor for the military govern­ment throughout the arca, :mt has ~~~lllll:\~ld of subordinate civil affairs oficers assigned to political subdivisions within the- territory. The lint of communication within the or­ganization is direct from higher to lower civil aflnirs oficcrs. Local civil affairs officers are IlOt rcsponsiblc t0 Op!ratiOnal ullit commanders stationed in the area with rrgard to the administration of civil affairs, but rcpokt directly to higher civil affairs oficcrs. It is n function of ~~‘~m~and to de­termine the tylx of organization to bc utilized at any particular time and ~Ixx. ThC SyStclll Xl0pt~d Inay Often involve fcaturcs of Cdl typ I:11llllllly I’Xil!S the occupy­tion will be progrcssivc, and one type of organization will
predominate  in  one  portion  of  :I  thcxtcr,  while  the  
other  type  prcdomin:&zi  in  nnothor  portion.  Under  
settled  conditions  in  continental  arcas  the  torritorial  fornl  
will  usually  prcvnil.  

17. ADVANTAGES      AND DISADVANTAGES OF EACH TYPE.
a. ‘Cantrol through OperatPonal Unit and Military Administratiive Area Commanders. (1 I Advantage, The ndvnntagc of control throu& opcr;ltion:ll nut1 military aclministrativc area commanders is thnt authority for all activities, civil as well as military, is conccntrntec~ in the hands of the commnndcr who is rcqonsiblc for operations, supply, and evacuation. Thin insures thxt 311 activities,
24
1“, I ,1
including relations between troops and inhabitants, wi&h” ” the given zone of operations or military administrative area, will be coordinated in support of the operation for which the commander is responsible. It obviates possible friction and misunderstandings which arc likely to arise when two mutually independent oflicers with overlapping responsibilities are present.
(21 Disadvantages. The disadvantngcs of control through operational unit and military administrative arca commanders are :
(al Such commanders, concerned with combat training and operations, supply and evacuation, are apt to overlook the importance of civil affairs duty to operations, as well as to diplomatic and economic objectives.
(bl Combat units are generally subject to frcqucnt movement, resulting in repeated changes in the pcrsonncl assigned to exercise control over local officials, with COXISC­quent variations in policy. Only to a limitccl cstcnt can this disadvantage be minimized by the retention in the arca, and attachment to incoming units, of civil affairs ofliccrs formerly on the staff of the outgoing unit.
(~1 Combat units will necessarily be disposed ;\ccording to strategical and operational requircmcnts, and only b) chance according to local boundaries. Corlsccplclltly, thr territory assigned as the zone of opcrntion of aOcombnt unit will usually embrace parts of the territory of numerous political subdivisions, To a lcsscr degree, this may alsa lx true of the territory assigned as the area of a military administrative unit. In such casts, the same set of local oficials may receive orders from the commanders of all the operational or administrative units whose zone of olxr;l- tions or areas lie within or partly withi the political sub­division. The headquarters of the unit may not bc located at the seat of the local governmcntnl authority, In such case, in order to provide cfTcctive control over civilian officials, the civil affairs section of the staf? of the uni1: mny have to be divided into two cchclo~~s, one at the nrilit:~ry headquarters and the other at the scat of govcxxmcnt, with consequent loss Of ~cficicncy. Even after the ix%sation of hostiiities, when forces arc used as garrisons, conformitv of their areas to political boundaries may not always be po+ sible. On the other hand, the cormander of any opera. tional unit or military administrative area may have to supervise the civil oGcials of scvcral political subdivisions, For these reasons, control through opcrationnl and ad. ministrative unit commanders is liltcly to be wasteful of
manpower.
(dJ Combat commanders and their staffs arc usually untrained in civil affairs work. Only to 9 limited extent can this disadvantage be minimized by the assignment of trained civil aflairs oficcrs to SUCK stalk
(eJ So long as hostilities are in progress or arc only temporarily suspended by an annistice, the control of civil affairs by military commanders takes their attention from the training of their men for combat, from lcadcrship in combat, and from other strictly military duties, which should ‘engage their whole time and energy.
IfI The imposition upon operating units of duties of military government or control of civil an’nirs tics such units to the al:ca in which they arc stationed and makes it very difficult to move them promptly ~1~~x1 military situa­tions, yhich should bc paramount, make such n move advisable.
b. Control Through a Civil Affairs Chain of Corn. mand. The advantages and disxdvantagcs of a civil affairs chain of command under the commanding offkcr of a higher cchclon are generally the opposite of those listed above for a civil aflkirs organization under operational units or miIitary aclministmtivc nrca commanders. A Civil affairs organization, established xftcr ~1 nrca bccomcs settled, will usually make a more cflcctivc and economical use of manpower than would an operating organization during such period. It would provide for greater con­tinuity of policy and personnel, and facilitate the use of specially selected and trained civil nkirs oflkers, On the other hand, since the 1ocn.l civil &‘airs oficcrs under thi? organization arc indcpcndcnt of the cammandcrs operating or garrisoned in their xrcas, or of commnndcrs exercising administrative command for other military purposes in the ” same area, unity of command at the lower level is not established.
18. COMBAT AREAS.
a.
Initial Organization. Military government usually begins in the combat zone, as soon as the area comes within control of the occupying force. In the forward areas organization of military govcrmncnt is necessarily limitccl to the most essential clcments of control in conformity with the military situation. Public officials may have fled, or be in hiding; consequently control must often bc cxcrciscd directly by the military forces on individuals. In rear areas, a greater degree of control and organization will usually be possible and dcsirablc. Rc,gimcnts or small naval combat units should be relieved of civil nfnirs control as far as possible.

b.
Type of Organization. In the combat zone, control on the principle of unity of command is p;~r:m~ount. Com­manders control the civil population within their zone’s of operation, without regard to political boundnrics. ThC civil airairs ofkxrs are either staff oBiccrs of the com­mander of the unit to which they arc attached or mcmbcrs of groups assigned to control cnpturcd :~cns. Orders con­cerning the control of civil nil’airs arc issued through the military chain of command. The cmploymcnt of military police or shore patrol or marine units 011 civil nfl’nirs duties is providccl for in the administrative or ol)cration or&r, or in an anncs thereto.

c.
Civil Affairs Personnel for Reinforcement. JVh the need is foucsccn, as when a city or other lx~l~ul~~us :w;\ is about to bc occupied, the thcrttcr commands clirccts that additional civil &tirs pcrsonncl be sent forw:~d to reinforce control of the area. Such personnel arc nttnclicd to the command within whose zone of olxrntions tl.11: city, port, island, or other nrcn will fall, but arc under or&:rs to pass to the control of the succeeding couin~:m&x wl~l~n combat units move forward. Evcntunlly, if the rr,rw:~~rl movement continues, they pass to the control of the c:()m­manding offkcr of a roar area or ‘to consul of tl~ n(~~~


l$rher civil affairs echelon under a civil affairs chain of command. While in the combat zone, reinforcing civil affairs personnel may be placed under the. orders of the chief of the civil affairs section of the staff of the unit to which they are attached. Reinforcing personnel should be selected with a view to their subsequent retention on civil affairs duty in the same area.
19.      ARM)’ COMMUNlCATlONi OR NAVAL AD. VANCED BASE ZONE.
a.
Amoun# of Organiza+ion. As territory falls within the communications zone or naval advanced base zone, a greater amount of civil affairs organization becomes pos­sible. Every effort is made to restore the normal func­tioning of the local government, subject, however, to civil aRairs control in aII echelons. Public ofEcixls are con­firmed in their functions, or replaced, except as to offices whose functions are suspended.

b.
Type of Organiza+ion. (1) In the communica­tions or naval advanced base zone, consiclcrntions of unity of command usually recluire that the zone and subordinate military administrative area commanders be given control of civil aflairs within their nrcas. 7%~ absence of zones of operation assigned to tactical unit commanders makes the assignment of civil aBairs control to such unit commanders as may be prcscnt unnecessary, and the disadvantages of control by such commanders make SUC~I assipncnt undesirable.


(2) If the communications or naval advanced base zone is not subdivided for purposes of military administration into sections or otherwise, the commanding oflicer of the zone (or the commxncling oficcr scrvicc forces of the theater, if he is charged with the duties of a commander of the zone) ) ‘creates a civil &airs command, and desig nates the chief of the civil affairs section of his staff as civil aflairs commander.
(3 1 If the communications or naval advanced base zone is subdivided for purposes of military administration into sections or otherwise, the commanding of&xx of the zone exercises civil al‘fairs control through section or other mili­tary administrative area comhmndcrs, who in turn control civil affairs oficcrs of the highest tmritorial political c~l~lt~l through the chiefs of the civil aflairs sections of their respective stafls, designated as civil afTairs ccmuuandcrs.
(4) If the occupied territory inch&s more than ore: country or island group or is divided into other territorial political subdivisions, it will gcncrally be advisable to detail a civil affairs group for onch of the subdivisions in tllc’ highest political echelon, with suficicnt pcrsonncl to supcr.~ vise the government of such subdivision, :tnd to m:zkc available, sufficient persomlcl for suballotmc~nt to subdivi­sions in lower political cchclons, including cities. Usually personnel will not be available for the direct supervision of political subdivisions of less degree than that corrcsl>onding to an American coun’~y, or of small critics. Thctsc% can bc supervised by frequent visits of pcrsonncl stationed at plncc!s of greater importance.
(51 Chiefs of civil a.fI’airs groups detailed to tbx military government of a territorial political subdivision command similar groups detailed to lc&cr territorial political sub­divisions included therein.
(61 The commander of a combat unit stationed in or passing through a locality in the conlrnunicntiorIs zone where ‘no civil aflairs ofEcm is prcscnt, may make arrt:sts in cases in which immediate restraint is nct!c:ssary; and, if so empowered by the theater commander, may :tp@nt provost courts to try inhabitants for oiYcnscs ag;\illst the security of his command or against inclividuals tht:r& sending the records of such trials, togcthcr with c.onvi~t~~tl defendants, tb the civil affairs o@icer iu c:hargc of t]~o ;\r(:;L. Othcrwisc, except in cmcrgcncies justifyinff assullrl)li(>n of civil affairs command by the scuior oficcr l)r(!s(qlt, con1­mandcrs of such units cxcrcise no control ov(:r l*ivil :\Q:xirs,
(7) When the forward boundary of a zone or section is about to be advanced, the comlnanclcr, unless civil alf;\irs ‘personnel who are to pass to his control are already irl th(x new arca, should arrange to have the nc:crssary ci\lil a[Sairs personnel report to the proper commander forward, to
29
be in readiness to assun~c control immccliatcly~ when the boundary is advanced.
2~. TASK FQRCE. A task ~OXXC commander operating in a theater of operations esmciscs civil affairs control lwithin his zone of operations in the same manner BS a theater commander.
21. =i’WEATER OF Q~~~~~l~~~.
a. During Campaign. (1 1 While, the thcatcr is sub. divided into a combat zone a~1 a communications or naval advanced base zone, the theater commander exercises civil affairs controI over the combat zone through tl~ command. ing officers of field armies OT the naval flcCt or task force Commanders and over the communications Or naval ad­vanced base zone through its commanding o&xx.
(21 If, however, the theater is subclividcd into zones of operations assigned to scparnte task forces, each of whicll has its own communications OS naval advanced base zone, the theater commander exercises control through task force commanders.
(3)
Control over the central civil administration of the occupied area is ordinarily cscrciscd directly by the theater commander through the civil all’airs section of his staff. If the thentcr headquarters is not at the capital, it may be necessary to divide the theater civil alITairs staIT section into two cchclons, and to station a portion of it at the head­quarters and a portion at the capital. If unclcr such cir­cumstanccs the capital is in the combat zone, the echelon of the civil aflairs section of the thcatcr stall: stationed thereat may bc nttachcd to thC ficlcl army or naval task force whose zone of olxxations incluclos the capital, nncl the commanding oficcr thcrcof may bc char@ with tempo­rary responsibility for supervision of the ci&l service at the capital.

b.
After CessaHon of Hostilities. hftcr fighting has ceased, in conscqucnce of an armistice or lx~tocol which rcndcrs the resumption of serious hostilities improbable, or if for any reason an occupied country is no longer within a Combat or communiCationi base xonc, tlrc tlicntcr com­


Ill;lndcr, or other suprcmc comnmndcr in the occupied country, so long as military government continues, may exercise control either through commanders of comhat units, within misting political subdivisions or within mili­
.tary districts consisting of a nunlbrr of such politknl subdivisions, or hc rnny cscrcisc control through civil af1’airs groups detailed directly to tcrritoriar politikxl subdivisions. If the situation ~warrants, a combination of thcsc two systcrns may be utilized, conlmaxlders of the larger cnnAx~t units being placed in control of the higher c~l~lons of military govCtmnerlt, with Civil nITairs groups, indclmKlcnt of commanders of the smnllcr combat units, bring dc~tailcd by them to exercise military govcrnmcnt functions it1 the lower ccliclons.

25.
CIVIL AFFAIRS GROUPS.


Q. General. A Civil affairs$ group detailed to a terri-’ torial political subdivision should consist of such ofliccrs, warkant officers, and cnlistcd pcrsom~l as m:ly bc ncccssary, with due regard to the structure and functions of the governmental unit to bc Controlled, the nnmbcr of subor­dinate territorial political subdivisions within the subcli­vision to which the group is clctailcd, the cast of Communi- cation within the arca, and thr size nncl chnractcr of the l~opulntion. To avoid Compiicntions arising from clcntb or illxlcss a.t lcast two ofIiicYY3 should b(: assigned Co conch group. The pcrsonncl of the gro~q) should bc assigned to such duties as its chief may clirtxt. Bscept in lnrgc Cities, ordinarily the lower the political cchrlon the less is the need for spcckdizntion; and whcrc ,thc group is small, slxcinlizatioii is impossible. A Inrgc Civil nfl’nirs group may bc organized in a mnnncr similar to a civil nRnirs staK section. (Set par. 21.)
b. Required Ccdegaries. In orckr to Coiuplctc a wcll- balnncccl gm~tp for Civil afYairs clutics, the following catc­gorics of pcrsonncl may bc rcquirrd :
34 .
( 1 ) Esccutivc and administrntivc pcrsonnc~l with special training in military government and liaison.
(2)
Technical specialists with special training in the characteristics of the arc:\ to which assigned.

(3)
Junior assistants.

(4)
Secretarial, clerical, and similar pcrsonncl.

(5)
Intcrprcters.

(6)
Military police; short patrol, or marine clctnchmcnt.

(7)
Oficcr and cnlistcd pcrsonncl for operation of motor vehicles, patrol vcsscls and airplnncs assigned to civil airairs units.


26.      MlLlTARY POLICE, MARINES, AND SHORE PATROL.
a. Necessity. (11 The chief of each civil affairs group, in territory in which United States forces arc cscr­cising military government, will need su&icnt force at his command to insure cxccution of his orders; to nrrost offenders against the military govcrmncnt; to s&e Brcarms, ’ explosives and other contraband nrticlcs; to s&c and guard funds;’ to seize and seal rccorcls and archives; to .control, reinforce, or supplant the local police in the maintcnancc of public or&r ; and to prcvcnt or sUpprcss espionage, sabotage,, and rioting. Such forces will nlso be needed by combat unit comm;u~dcrs who arc vested with civil affairs control.
(2)
The use of combat units for this purpose, at lcast until a definite ccssntion of hostilities, is unclcsicnblc~, though at times .it may bc ncccssary. Not only arc such units divcrtcd from their combat nlission and innnobilizod hut their armament is unnc~cc~ssarily l~owcrful for orclimlry civil al-fairs duty.

(3)
Organic military police units nf arnlics, corps, divi­sions, and ma.rinc or short patrols of ilcct unit.s, will not ordinarily be available in the colnniunicntions zone 0r n;~vnl advnnccd base; furthcrxnorc, their :trnlaulcnt is n0t wtbll adapted to use in civilian control, While they lqill 1~ available in the forward nrcn, tlicy can si~lclom 1~ sp:trctl from otlicr clutics in suflkicnt nunJ~i~rs to control the population of a city, port, or ciqcstccl arca.

Where local civil police forces OX cOtlstabularics are trustworthy and adequate they shall be USC~ to the maxi­mum extent.

(5)
Where local civil police forces are inadequate or ca’nnot be relied upon, military police, marines, or shore patrol should be provided, organized, and equipped similarly to rear area military police units. Units which may have to be sent rapidly from their station to control outlying areas should be wholly or partially motorized or, in the case of island ‘areas, provided with patrol V~SSC~S and airplanes. The use of women nmrhers of the armed forces may be pra&&le, for technical and clerical duties.


la. Assignrmen+ and Command. (1) Military poIicc, marines, or ‘shore patrol units for the enforccmcnt of civil affairs control outside the forward arca should be assigned to cities and to political subdivisions a~ the situation war­xants. They should be placed under the command of the o&er in charge of civil affairs in ‘the city OX other political subdivision. This is a matter wholly within the discretion of the zone or theater commander.
E2) When there is riced thcrefor, the thcatcr commander may direct that reinforcing military police, marines, or shore patrol units be sent into the forward nrcn for the enforcement of civil afFnirs control in cities or other con­gested areas. Such units will bc attached to the combat unit in whose area of operations they arc to be. stationed, but with orders to pass to the control of succeeding com­manders when combat units I~~OVC forward, Eventually, if the forward movcmcnt continues, thc?y pass to the control of the commanding oficcr, communication zone or naval advanced base, or of the com~nancl~r of a s&ion thereof, and by him are l~la~ecl under the command of the proper civil affairs oficcr. While within the WJIK of operations of a combat unit, they may, by the commander thcrcof, bc placed, according to circumstances, under the command of a civil affairs oficer of the unit, OS otheswisr. assigned. They should bc sclcctcd with a view to their rctcntion, wholly or ih part, on similar duty in the same arca,
36
c. Authority to Make Arrests. Subject to the orders of higher authority, military police, whether on or ofF
5 duty,      have authority to arrest inhabitants of territory under military govermnqk,, who offend against, or arc suspected of offending against, the ordinances or other orders of United States military authority or against local law, or who are in any way disturbing the public pcacc or acting in a manner hostile to United States forces. When immc­diate restraint is ncccssary, they also have authority to arrest persons subject to military law; such poisons shoulcl, however, be turned over to the appropriate commander as soon as practicable.

30.
GENERAL. Pl?nning for the control of civil affairs in occupied areas is a responsibility of commanders assigned to the planning of military operations. Civil affairs plan­ning, as a part of the planning of military ollerations, khould be integrated with operational plans and integrated with the situation and problems to be met. These problems ­in civil affairs should be anticipated and provided for by plans and alternatives, Acxible and subject to continuous change and adaptation during operatibns. Careful plan­ning will lead the command& to issue the specific civil’ affairs orders suited to the cxpcctcd situation. Planning will also reveal requirements for ofricers, enlisted personnel and materials, requisitions for which should be forwarded in ample time.

The Civil Affairs Division in the War Dcpartmcnt and the OfIiccz:for Occu­pied Arcas of the Navy D’cpnrtment, s~bje~l:to the directiou of the Joint or Combined Chiefs of Staff, are responsible for the integration of the civil affairs plan with the strate­gical and logistical plans for military operations and for liaison with civilian agencies of the United St,ztes hovern- ment. The civil affairs plan of the War and Navy Depart. merits, usua.lly brief and general, is transmitted to the theater commander in the form of ‘a dircctivc. It contains the broad political and economic policies to bc observed.

b.
Thea+er of Operations. Civil affairs planning for his command is a responsibility of cvcry officer charged with civil affairs control, whcthcr he be the theater coin­mander, the commander of a task force, a tactical unit, or a military administrative area, or the chief of a civil affairs group. The duty of actual preparation of the plan in accordance with the directive of the commander, usually devolves on the chief of the cisil affairs section of the staff. According to circumstances, the commander approves the plan, with or without modification, bclore it is translated into orders, or approves the civil aflairs order which results from the planning. It is dcsirnblc that civil aflairs plans of theater and task force commanders be trannnitted to the Joint or Combined Chiefs of Stafl’ for confirmation.,

In occupations of neutral or nllicd territory, lately held by an enemy, a mnnifcsto may also be issued by the legitimate gavernmcnt supporting the ocxxpation and call­ing upon ~ff%ktls and inhabitants to coopcratc and to obey the r&es laid down by the commxldcrs of SUCK forces. Such manifcstos arc not legally ncccssnry, but arc issued to promote coopcration of the population with the CKXupying forces. In occupations of this type, the thcntcr commnndcr will usually clcnr such manifcstos with the Joint or Com­bincd Chiefs of Staff.

c.
contefa+s. The initial proclnmatioa will vary in content according to the circumstances of the occupation. The important items to-be covcrcd XC: the stntc of nRa&s which exists, a definition of the arcn and peoples to which the proclamation npplics, the cxtcnt to which the civil administration will bc nflcctcd, the manner in which the inhabitants arc to conduct thcmsclvcs, and the mcasurcs which will be resorted to by the military govcrnmcnt. It is imlxacticnble to outline the contents of proclamations for all tylxs of occupations. In dcfinitcly hostile territory the proclamation should, in gcncrnl, cover the following points :


(‘II 1 Declaration of the Occupatian. This is formal notice of the fact of occupation and of tllc territory in gcncral over which the military govcrnmcnt nssumes jurisdiction.
(21 Purpose and Policy of the Omxqmtion. It may bc advisnblc to include a. stntcmcnt as to the l~url~ose and policy of the occupntion. Politicnl objcctivcs should be included only prsunnt to instructions from higher authority.
(3 1 Supremacy 6f Military Authority of Occupying Forces. This is an csscntinl lxcrcquisitc to the ndminis­trntion of any military govcrmncnt. It shoulcl bc nn­nounccd that n military governor had been appoirrtcd and that political tics with 2nd obligntinns to the cncrny gov­crmncnt, if any, arc suspcndcd. It should bc announced that inhabitants will be rc:~pirccl to obey orders of the theater comnmndcr and his subordinates and to abstain from all acts Or WOKIS of hostility or disrcspcct to the occupying forces.
(4) Retention of Laws and Officials. It: &uld be nnnounccd that, unless the military authority directs othcr­wise, local 1:LwS alld CuStOlns will continue in force, local OIlGals will continue in Oflkc, and ofIiccr and cml~loyees Of all transportation and colnmunic:ltion systems and of public utilities and other csscritinl scrviccs will carry on with their regular tasks.
(51 Treatment of Inhabitants. Assuratm-~ho~kl be given that persOns who Obey the instructions of the mili­tary authority have nothing to fear and will be duly protcctcd in their lx~sOns, property, family rights, religion, and occupation; and that those who commit ol-lcnscs will he scvercly punished.
(6) Resumption of Usual Occupations. Inhabitants sho~~lcl be instructed that they nlust continue or resume their usual occupations, unless sp~cifcslly clirectcd to the contrary. This will assist in the nlaintennncc of law and Order and restoration of nornml Oconomic conditions.
(71 Detailed Rules of Conduct. It is advisable to put the polxk~tion On notice that furthc:r proclnnintions or ordinnnccs will specify in dctnil what is required of the inhabitants and what is forbicldcn than to do.
(81 Miscelllaneous. Other rnnttcrs may bc coverccl, if circuinstnncos wnrlYult. Proclnmations published by prc- vious military govcrnrncnts may nlso scrvf as useful guiclcx

a.
Issuclace. As soon as practicable after the publica­tion of the initial proclamation, the theater commander, or his authorized subordinate, will issue a detailed set of rules regulating the conduct of the population. These rules may appear as a proclamation, numbered in squcmce with other proclamations, or as ordinances. As far as possible these rules will have been prepared in advance and in accordance with directives issued to the ,thcater com­mandcr. Careful study should be made of the local laws, in order that necessary rules or ordinances, and only these, may be prepared, and in order that their full ramifications and effects may bc unclcrstood.

b.
Form-and Character. The people of the occupied territory should be informed as to what they are rcquircd to do, what acts are forbidden, and in what courts they may be tried if they are charged with offenses. In general they should bc warned of the penalties which may be im- posed for disobcdiencc. Offenses should be clearly and simply defined. These further proclamations or ordinances should be published in English and in the languages of the occupied area. Translations should be simple and clear. It may be necessary to have a general prohibition against all hostile or subversive acts to cover oBenses not specifi­tally mentioned. Great care must bc exorcised in connec­tion with such regulation as it will mean very little to the population and will bc subject to grcnt variations of inter- pretation by the courts. As soon as several conviction6 for a similar offense under such regulation have been approved by the reviewing, authority, that type of of%nsc should be made the subject of a clearly defined proclamation or ordinance. In this way all forbidden acts which could reasonably be forcsccn, or which have been pointed up by experience, will be clearly set forth as a guide Lo the courts and population.

c.
Contents. Contents of further proclamations OF ordinances will depend upon the stage of development of the pcoplc, their laws, customs, and institutions, and upon the military and political situation at the time of the occu­


pation. The rules laid down in the initial proclamations
and ordinancg are concerned primarily with the mnin­
tenance of law and order and the security of the occupying
forces and their lines of cOnnnunicatipn. Additional rules
or      ordinances will be issued as ncccssary to cOver a wide
variety of subjects. Proclnnlntions or ordinmccs may be
alnendcd or replaced, in accordance with cspcricnce. l’rc”.
quent changes are to be avoided, as they may be intcrlxctcd
by the inhabitants as indications of vacillations and wcab­
ness. In gcncral, it is sound policy to bc strict at the
beginning of an occupation and gradually relax the rcquirc-
nlents. Proclnniations Ox* ordinances should contain 110
provisions which it is not plautxd or not possible to enforce.
d. Delegation of Authority. Theater coxnmandcrs
lnay delegate their pOWXS to issue p~OCl~Ukli~tiOllS 01’
ordinances to subordinate ~omn~nndcrs or civil aflairs of&
cers, placing such limitations upon the csercisc of dclegatcd
authority as tl?cy see fit. It is geuerally advisable tl\at
considerable authority bc dclrgatcd cithcr to unit COIW
rnanders or civil a&k oflic~rs who arc actually locntcd in
the occupied territory. All ordinnnccs of local :qq~licntion
only will bc signed in the nnmc Of the military governor.
e. Publication. Publication may lx made as in the case of initial lxmlninntiOns.
37. ORDERS AND INSTRUCTIONS, Authority to issue detailed orders and instructions to locx~l oflit:i:ds sl~o~dcl iw delcgntcd to unit ~O~nnmndcr~ Or civil aflairs nflkcrs on thr spot. Insofar as possible SLI& orders and instructions should be in writing and topics rctninccl. Oral orders rund instructiorls may bc! given through intcq9rtWrs or in tlic local language.

*      is sent into an arca 0x1 a mission requiring contact with local oficinlf;, hc should ~o~~s~dt with, act through, tilt: oficur charged with local civil nfl’nirs contrO1. Wlirrt: effkicnt n~lIiiiiiistration rccluircs that: lligli runlcing lc& civilian ofIicinls be permitted to continue a practice of transmitting orders directly to subordinatE officials, some procedure should be established whereby the civil affairs officer immediately concerned is informed of such orders and is empowered to interfere and countermand when he believes such action to be necessary.
SECTION VII

MILITARY COMMISSIONS, PROVOST COURTS, AND CLAIMS
38.
ESTABLISHMENT. When an area is occupied and placed under military govcrnmcnt, the commanding officer in the theater of operations should establish military conl­missions and provost courts to try inhabitants for offcnscs aflecting the military administratian. These courts in general will not be circunxcribcd by the statutory and other rules governing courts martial; and their number, types, jurisdiction and proccdurc will be determined by the theater commander, subject to instructions from higher authority. The term “military courts,” as used in this manual does not include “courts martial.”

39.
TYPES.


a. Customary Types. (1 I It has been customary for forces of the UniGxl States to provide lor at lcnst two types of military courts for the trial Of civilians-military com­missions and provost courts. The former deals with tbc most serious oflcnscs, for which punishment by death or by long prison terms and heavy fines have been prescribed, while the latter deals with less serious casts.
(2 1 Military commissions may bc appointccl or convened to try slxxific casts, t,f as standing tribunals to hear all suc11 CBSCS. Their nun&x and location will dcpcnd upon the volume of casts to be tried, the availability of ofkcrs to sit on such courts, the ncccssity for travel, the avail­ability of witncsscs, and the eficient administration of justice,
(3)
Provost courts may also be appointed Or convened to try specific cases, or as standing tribunals to hear various classes of lesser cases. Generally, a single type of provost court will be sufficient, although circumstances may war­rant the creation of superiar and inferior provost courts. Where there are a suficicnt number of minor oflenses in any locality to occupy the full time of one court, and enough of the more serious oflenscs cognizable by provost courts to occupy at least the part time of another court, it may be advisable to crcnte two types of provost courts, in order to espedite the disposition of the large volume of Ininor cases. The number, types, and location of provost courts will depend, as with military commissions, upon such factors as the volume of WSCS, the availability of oficcrs, the question of travel, the whcrcnbouts of wit­nesses, and the speed and cffcctivcness with which justice can be administered. Thcrcforc, for cficicncy, a civil aflairs oficer cxcrcising control over a p”rticular area should dclcgntc the power to bring to trial with cslxxlition the majority of cxcs. A table of masimum punishments for specific OIFCnSCs, aS well as the power of remission vested in reviewing oficcrs, should counteract any tcndcncy toward inquality of punishments mctcd out by provosl: courts in dill&xl: locnlitics.

b.
O+her Types. If local conditions warrant> special +tary courts may bC cstablishccl for the trial of vagrants, l~rostitutcs, juvcnilq trx& violatOrs, or other classes of Oflcndcrs, or for civil CURCS (par. 4~2).


40. COMPOSITION.
ma, Milihry Commissions. In providing for n$itnr)’ commissions, which may consi$ of any n~uiibcr of officers, rhc comrnnndcr will nppoint not less than three csccpt in cstraordinnry circumstances. In gencml, the rules for nrmy or navy gcW%xtl courts martial will scrvc as a guide in clctcrmining the coml~ositions OS militnry comni,issiOns, in­cluding the designation af lnw rncmbers, trial judge advo-C~QCS, and necessary nssistn.nts: The provision for a law I~E~~CP, with powers nnd clutics similar to those of a law member of an army gOncra1 court martial, promotes sound 51
decisions on matters of IZLW aId speed in procedure, and is recommended for such military commissions for both the army and the navy.
b.
Provosf Courts. A provost COUK~ will ordinarily consist of one offlccr who should, if possible, have legal training and expcricncc. When it is necessary to create two types of provost courts, it may be advisable in more serious cases to appoint three mcmbcrs to superior provost courts. Provision may be made for standing special judge advocates or defense counsel, dc:l.“:nding ‘upon the type and volume of casts which WC tried before these courts,

c.
Other Types. The purposes for which other types of military courts are crcatcd, 5ts ~011 ;U the kinds and the volume of casts heard by them, will dcterminc their com­position and the need for SUC~I special court personnel as judge advocates, dcfcnsc counsel, provost marshals and clerks. Ordinarily such courts will be constituted as provost courts.

d.
Personnel. It is customary and usually advisable to apl~oint commissioned oficcrs as members of military courts and as juclge advocates and defense counsel. In general, where an army officer is the thcatcr commander, he will appoint or nuthorizc the appointment of army of& cers ns’members of such military courts; and whcrc a naval officer is the theater commander, IZC will appoint or au­thorize the appointment of naval officers as members of such courts. l*hcrc is no rule, however, which pro­hibits a theater commander from appointing oficicers from bdth branches of the scrvicc, cithcr to sit on the same court or to sit on separate courts, within the theater under his command. .


41. APPOINTING AU’I’HORITIES. Military commis­sions and provost courts may be appointed or convened by the oflicer in command in the theater of operations. He may delegate this power to subordinate commanders or civil affairs oficers. In forward arcas, in order to avoid delay, the cxtcndecl ‘confinement of prisoners, or the loss of witncsscs especially in cases where immediate example is necessary, it is advisable to delegate such authority to ,
52
division, force or other unit ccmlmanders in forward areas and to civil nirnirs officers in both Eorw~rd and rear nrcas. Whenever subordinate ofliccrs appoint or convene military courts, the orders establishing such courts should, but need not, recite the sour02 Of their authority.
4i. ~~~IS~~C~~~
a.
General. Military courts hnvc jurisdiction only over such cases or classt:s of casrs as are rcfcrrcd to them by the qqointing or convening authority.

b.
.Qver Persons. Military courts have jurisdiction over all persons within the occupied torritory cxccpt those having diplomatic immunity, and csccpt prisoners of war; but, unless thcrc are cogent rCas0rls to tliP contrary in a particular cast, persons subject to military or navnl law of the United States or its allies should bc tried by court martial.

e.
Over Offenses DirecNy Affecting MilHary Cov­ernmen+. ’ Military courts have jurisdiction over the following types of oflcnscs:


(1 1 Oficnses against the laws and usngcs of war.
(2 1 Violations of the proclamations, ordin&cs, rcguln­tions or orders promulgntcd by the theater commander or by his nuthorizcd subordinntcs.
d.
Over Offenses Agains+ Local Criminal Laws. IT the criminnl courts of the occupied territory are open and functioning satisfactorily, they should ordinarily bc por­mittcd to try l~rsons charged with ofl’cnsta ugainst local criminal IXW, not involving the rights, intcrcsts, ;W lxq.xrty af the United States or nthcr person serving with the occu­pying forces and sul~jccl: to military KW naval Ixw of the United States or of countrks allicd with the ‘CJnitcd States. The thentcr comn~~udcr or his authnrizccl suborclinatc may suspend lxoccldings in such local c’ourts in ;my cr~se or class of casts or may clircct that su& c;ks(’ or class of cases bc tried by militury courts. SuCll powor should bc cxer­&cd with rcspcct to any. lxosccudon inimic:~l to tllo ill­tcrcsts of the I.Jnitcd Stntos.

b.
Military Commissions. It is gcncrally advkblc to direct that military connnissions follow the procedure of gcncral Army or Navy courts martial, except whcrc such procedure is l~lainly in:q~l~lictzblc. The :~llowance of pcr­cmptory challenges should not bc ncccss:~ry. Any rcquire­tncnts of unnninious vote for a dcnth scntmcc ulay unduly impede the authority of niilitary governnlcnt. It n1a.y bc advisable to curtail the cstcnt of prclimiunry invcstig&ons.

c.
Prwosf Caurts! Provost courts should in gcncrnl follow the proccdurc of Rrnly su~nnx~y courts martial or Navy dcclc courts, csccpt where such proccclure is nl:lni- fcstly inapplicable. If it is ncccssnry to cstnblish inferior provost courts, lxoccdurc uxxy bc sin+ified.

d.
Special Courts. The proccdurc of other types of military courts will corrcspnnd to that spctiificd for provost courts or military coniiuissions, as dircctcd by the appoint­ing authority.

e.
Trials. Trjals should bc had and judgrncnts cntcrcd with the utmost dispatch consistent with fair administra­tion of justice, pnrtic~ulnrly in Cases where witncsscs for or against the accused arc likely to disnlqxxr, Rccuscd per­sons should not bc tried utAw thy are present in person at the trial.

f.
Counsel. Rccuscd l~rso~s should bc nllowcd to rc­txin counsel of tlirir own clioicc and at their own csl~c~nsc. Ordinarily military counsel sl~wlcl bc provided only for l~crsons tried by nlilitary conunissions. I-Iowcvcr, unro:zso~~­nblc cw~tinunnccs in order to obtain caunscl sl~~ulcl bc prohibited.

g.
Witnesses. The attcndnncc of nlilitxry witnesses may be obtainccl as in Army or Navy courts nlnrtinl. Military courts should bc cml~owcrecl to conqxl tlic! ;tt­tcndnncc of civilian witncsscs, and to obtnin the nccc:ss;~ry assistnncc thcrcfor frani local oilicials, nlilitnry police, and short patrol, nncl nplxq~ria tc coitiinanding or civil ;I Ll’airs oflkcrs.

h.
Interpreters. Proccccliiqp should 1x2 concluctocl in the 1:mgungc most convcniwt uliclcr the circwustnnccs. Whcrc it is ncccssary, intcrprctcrs should bc proviclcd, so


that the accused, his counsel, and the personnel of the court are fully informed as to the entire proceedings.
i.
@porters. If available, shorthand reporters should, be employed in all cases tried before military commissions, and in such cases tried before provost courts as the appoint- ing or convening authority shall authorize.

j.
previous Convictions. A military court may be au- thorized to consider, after a finding of guilty and before imposition of sentence, evidence of previous convictions and sentences by military courts (American or foreign) or civilian courts. Evidence of conviction of an offense legally punishable by imprisonment for more than 1 year should be admissible without regard to the date of commission of such ofl?ense.


45. SENTENCES.
a. General, Sentences should be limited to those pre­scribed by the theater commander or his authorized sub­ordinates. These will usually be issued in the form ‘of a prepared table of maximum punishments in terms of fines or imprisonment, or both. This table should be issued to all military courts and in the discretion of the theater commander may be made public.
b., Military Commissions. In general, the sentences which military commissions should be author&d to impose will include fines, imprisonment at hard labor, and death.
c.
Provost Courts. Sentences imposed by provost courts should be limited to fines or imprisonment at hard labor, or both, with appropriate limitations, such as $5,000 and 5 years.

d.
Additional Penalties. The following punishments may be imposed in addition to OS in lieu of fines and confinement.


(1 I Exprnlsi~~~ Military courts may bc authorized, in
appropriate cases, to espcl convicted persons from occupied
territory.
(21 Confiscation. Military courts rnay~#be authorized
in cases involving the unlawful purchase, sale, possession or
use of property, to order the forfeiture of such property to
the military government.
56
(31 Padlocking. Military courts may bc authorized to close houses of prostitution, places where there is unlawful traffic in intoxicating licluor or narcotics, and other places whre persons arc found to bc engaging in unlawful netivity.
e.
Confinemen+. The theater commander should issue orders concerning the confincmcnt of convicted persons. Such orders will specify, among other things, the mnnncr of imprisonment, the rules of conduct to be followed,, and labor to be performed. Ordinarily, convicted persons should be confined within the occupied territory. The officer empowered to approve a scntcncc should designate the place of confinement. I(

f.
Fines. All monks received as court fines will bc held, accounted for, and ‘disbursed according to prcscribcd procedure.


46. RECORbS.
a. Charges. It is advisable that chxrgcs be preferred by a person subject to military or naval law and on a “chnrgc sheet.” The charge sheet used by the Army
(W.
I&, A. G. 0. Form No. 115) may bc used, with such changes and additions as ~nay br nccc’ssary, or xpproprinta forms may bc adapted from those contained in NavaI Courts and Boards ( 1937). No oath to the charges should be required.

b.
Mili+ary Commissions. M i 1i 1; a r y commissions sho~~lcl l~~ep records similar to those of Army or Navy goneral courts martial.

c.
Prowost Courts. The thcntcr conu-nnndcr should


qxescribc      the types of records to be made of various classes of cnsw tried before provost courts. In ccrtnin types of casts, it may be advisnblo to kccq~ full rccorcls, with a coxnplcte transcript of all testimony. .In others, a sunun:n-y record may bc kept on the bxk of the charge sllert. Where it is ncccssary to establish tlic’ infcri& type of provost court, the latter proccdurc will gcncrally be fol­lowc$, and oral evidcncc will not bc rccordud.
47. REVIEW.
a.
General. All records of trial by military courts should be examined by the appointing or convening oficer or duly authorized subordinate, for the ~LW~OSC of correct­ing injustices. Further review in the next higher echelon may be desirable in important classes of ~ascs, and some cases may be dircctcd for final rcvicw to the headquarters of the theater commander. No sentence of death should be executed until it shall have been confirmed by the theater commander or by an authorized subordinate, esccpt that if a death sentence is imposed by an exceptional military court convcncd under naval authority, it must also be ‘confirmed by the Secretary of the Navy. The rev&wing authorities should be cmpol+rcd to disapprove or vacate, in whole or in part, any finding of guilty; to mitigate, commute, remit, or vacate the uncsccutcd portion of scntenccs, in whole or in part; and to restore the accused to all rights affected by the findings and sentcncc.

b.
Military Commissions. NO sentcncc of a military commission ni’ay be carried into efkct until its record shall have been examined by the stafl’ judge advocate of the oficer appointing the commission or his successor (see

A.
W. 46) ; nor may the scntcnce of any military commis­sion be carried into eRect until it shall have been approved by the appointing oficer.

c.
Proves* Courts. The sentcnccs of provost courts should be executed forthwith, subscqucnt prompt review suEicir$ to correct injustices which may occur and to prevent the repetition of errors.


48.      CLAIMS ARISING IN OCCUPIED TERRITORY FOR, DAMAGE CAUSED BY MILIPARY. PERSONNEL (not including procurcmcnt claim) .
a. General. In order that there may bc prompt inves­tigation and settlement of claims, the military governor should establish in his territory a claims service, under the direction of an officer, prcfcrably with legal training and with expcricnce in the investigation and settlement of claims. The chief of the claims service will be rcspo&ible for the preparation of regulations governing claims pro:
58
ccdure and the operation of the claims invcstignting scrv­ice. Prompt awards will greatly improve the attitucle of the peopk toward the occupying IWCCS.
b.
Investigation. It is the duty of civil aflairs officers to make -prompt invcstigntion and record of all accidents and incidents which may give rise to claims. This will prevent later disputes and the prcscntati& of stale or unjustified claims through diplomatic or other channels.

c.
Settlement of Claims-Army. (1 I Qccupied Enemy Territory. The rules under which claims are processed dcpcnds upon whcthcr the award will be paid from United States funds or those of the military govcrn­mcnt. Since, in most cases, practically the entire popu­lation of cncmy territory occupied by Unitccl States forces will consist of enemy nationals, claims will normally bc chargeable to the military govcrnmcnt and paid from funds of the military govcrnmcnt, not United States funds. Such claims will bc processed in accordance with regulations issued by the thentcr commander. The provisions of the act of 2 January 1942 (55 Stat. 880; 31 U. S. C. 224d) as amended by the act of 22 April 1943 (57 Stat. G6), and AR 25-90, and the provision of the act of 3 July 194.3 (Public Law 112, 78th Gong.), and AR 25-25 do not apply to claims chargeable to such military government. In cast claims are to be paid from United States ‘funds the appropriate statutes and Army Regulations apply.


(21 Occupied Allied or Neutral Territory. AS for claims in occupied cncniy territory, the processing of claims in occupiccl allied or neutral territory depcncls upon the, source of funds for paymnnt. It is a nlattcr of poliq whcthcr claims in occupied allied or neutral territory are paid by funds of the military government. If so, they may be groccsscd in accordance with rcgulntions issued by thr thcntcr commanclcr and the statutes and Army Regulations cited hi paragraph 48c( 1 I abovc, do not apply. An) cl$ms which .it is dctcrmined shall bc chnrgcnblc to United States funds will bc considcrccl and allowecl and paid, or disallowed, by a .forcign clni,tns commissian unclcr the pro­visions of AR 25-90 and AR 25-25, as the case may bc.
59
T
The claims of all persons not members of the IJnited States
or allied military forces cognizable under the provisions of AR 25-90 or AR 25-25 should be subject to suspension of payment by general or special order of the military gov­ernor for such time as he may direct.
(3) Procedure. All claims for damage to, or loss or destruction of ‘property, or for personal injury or death, cognizable under the provisions of AR 25-90 or AR 25-25, should be fully investigated and processed in accordance with the provisions of such regulations and AR 25-20. All such claims will bc submitted to a foreign claims commis­sion, appointed under the provisions of AR 25-90. Claims chargeable to the military government may be submitted to ‘a foreign claims commission for processing CWIZ though not payable under AR 25-90; or such claims may be submitted to a board, commission, or other agency established by the military governor, which may be composed in whole or in part of officers of the United States Army, the United States Navy, or oficers of allied forces.
(41 Territory Subject to Jurisdiction of the United States Reoccupied by United States Army Forces. AS to territory subject to the jurisdiction of the United States qccupied by the enemy and reoccupied bfr United States or allied forces, claims arising therein will be proccsscd in accordance with the provisions of AR 25-25, whether or not a military government is established+
d. Settlement of Claims--Navy. In order that there may be prompt scttlcment of meritorious claims, command­ing officers of occupied territories shall appoint claims commissioners to consider and dccidc claims against the United States for injuries to property or inhabitants of occupied areas arising out of noncombat activities of United States naval forces including civi1in.n employees. If a claimant is a national of an ‘enemy country or of one of its all&, there must be a determination by the claims commission or by the 104 military. commxndcr that the claimant is friendly to the United States, bcforc his claink *Gay be allowed. A foreign claims commission may be aIlpointed to considcl; each claim as presented, or consti­
60
tute a standing claims commission to consider all claims presented to it. A commission will consist of not more than three commissioned officers of either the Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard. Claims of $500 or less may be heard by a commission consisting of one oflkcr. Claims between $500 and $5,000 shall be heard by a commission of three ofhcers. Decisions involving payments of $2,500 or less are final, while decisions involving payments of $2,500 to $5,000 are subject to review by the commanding officer. The Sccrctary of the Navy may, if he deems any claim in excess of $5,000 to be meritorious, certify such amount as may bc just and reasonable to Congress as a legal claim for payment. Claims accruing subscqucnt to 1 May 19-13 must bc filed within 1 year after the occurrence of the injury which is the basis of the complaint. The fact that the act giving rise to the claim may constitute a crime ’ does not bar relief, Contributory negligence of the claim­ant has such effect in the way of defeating or reducing claimant’s rccovcry as it would have under local law.. No formal proccdurc is prcscribcd for the conduct of the hear­ing on claims, but the instructions in Naval Courts and Boards (1937) governing the proccdurc of Courts of Inquiry and Boards of Investigation should bc used as’ a guide. The claims commission shall forward to The Judge Advocate General for review its findings and recommen­dations on all claims in which total damage cscced $5,000 and where the clnimn.nt retuscs to accept that amount in settlement of his claim. Claims within the jurisdiction of the Commission, but disallowed, shall also be forwarded to The Judge Advocate Cenernl. The instructions and regu­lations of tlze Sccrctnry oi” the Navy concerning foreign claims commissions appearing in the 15 May 1943 issue of Navy Bullctin shall bc followed by all commanding ~fli~ers and their subordinntcs in accupicd territories. An Army claims Commission may liancllc foreign claims for the Navy if rcqucstcd to do so and vice versa, With rcspcct to claims payable from funds of the military govcrnmcnt as distinguished from claims approved by a foreign claims commission and payable out of United States funds refcr­cnc.e is made to paragraph 48~.
