* Held, that service of a commissioned officer in command of such a headquarters conipany or troop constitutes service“ with a troop, battery, or company.” within the purview of the detached-service act of 1912. (War Dept. Bull, 39, Oct. 6, 1916.)

The question was presented whether a regimental adjustant of Field Artillery is to be deemed present for duty with a troop, battery, or company, within the meaning of the detached-service act of August 24, 1912.

Held, as follows: As to a regiment of infantry, it has been held that the adjutant thereof is on duty " with a troop, battery, or company ” will the purview of the detached-service law, because he is in command of the headquarters company. (Bull. 39, W. D., 1916, p. 12.) While the national-defense act provides that a regimental adjutant of Infantry or Cavalry shall command the headquarters company or headquarters troop, as the case may be, this is not so as to the adjutant of a Field Artillery regiment. He does not command the headquarters company, the supply company, nor any battery in the regiment, other captains having been provided as component parts of those organizations for that purpose. (Sec. 19, national-defense act.) A regimental adjutant of Field Artillery is, therefore, an additional officer, and he is not, so long as he occupies his normal status as adjutant, on duty with a troop, battery, or company, within the meaning of the detached-service act of 1912. (War Dept. Bull. 3, Jan. 19, 1917.)

Footnote to preceding paragraph also applies to this.
