Army Form B.115 - Court of Inquiry inventory

 
This form, as is clearly stated on the form, was used by a Court of Enquiry to list the "Arms, Ammunition, Equipments, Instruments, Regimental Necessities or Clothing" of men who had absented themselves without leave. The interest for me - and I suspect other family and military historians - is in the minutiae of detail given - not to mention the cost of some of the items.
