Hi,

Army Form B.213 (Field Return) was submitted by the unit on a weekly basis to the 3rd Echelon. It had information relating to the strength of the unit;

1. Appointments to the Acting and Lance Ranks.

2. Attachments

3. Casualties - Killed, Wounded, Missing, & Injuries (If self inflicted or accidental)

4. Wounded (If 'remaining on duty')

5. Detachments.

6. Details joining from Base Depots

7. Evacuations to hospital sick.

8. Promotions to Temporary or Permanent rank.

9. Personnel rejoining from being sick or wounded.

10. Reinforcements taken on strength.

11. Proceeding on leave (U.K. to be stated)

12. Transfers.

13. Reversions.

14. Rejoining from leave

Regards Mark
