(xvb) Free. To take up civil employment which cannot be held open

(xvi) No longer physically fit for service

(xviii) At his own request after 18 years service (with a view to pension under

the Pay Warrant)

(xix) For the benefit of the public service after 18 years service (with a view to

more) years service as warrant officer (with a view to pension under the

Pay Warrant)

There appears to be no clause (xvii) and I have also come across clauses not listed here (xxva), (xxviii). I would assume that these were later additions to the regulations. If anyone out there in the ether can give me any further information on the clauses mentioned I would be most grateful.
