Armoured Car Aeroplane Support - Field Allowance
And whereas under Section 3 of the Naval Forces Act, 1903, it is provided that any volunteer Officer, or man, when training afloat or called out for actual service, shall be deemed to be serving in Your Majesty's Naval or Marine Force within the meaning of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865

And whereas under the regulations for the government of Your Majesty's Naval Service the Field Allowance granted to Officers and men employed in military operations on shore are not payable when quarters are provided at the public expense

And whereas we are of opinion that in the case of Officers and men attached to the Armoured Car Aeroplane Support, when employed in military operations abroad, the application of the above restriction will not be practicable

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council, to authorize the continuous payment of Field Allowance, in the circumstances stated, to Officers and men of the Armoured Car Aeroplane Support borne on Ship's Books, except in cases where the nightly rate of subsistence allowance is paid.
