MAINTENANCE OF SIZE
RECORDS

1. Accountable officers of using activities shall requisition and maintain stocks of clothing as prescribed in pertinent allowance lists. Except as noted below, clothing shall be requisitioned on a U. S. Marine Corps Requisition, Form NAVMC 25-SD (Rev.), prepared in accordance with instructions contained in Part B, Chapter 54. Only clothing items in the standard sized range shall be requisitioned on Form NAVMC 25-SD (Rev.). (See Catalog of U.S. Marine Corps Material.)

2. Garments required for personnel who cannot be fitted with standard stock sizes shall not be carried in stock by using activities but shall be requisitioned as required on a Uniform Clothing—Special Requisition (Form NAVMC 912-SD (Rev.), submitted directly to the Depot Quartermaster, Marine Corps Depot of Supplies, Philadelphia, Pa., except in the case of wonnen Marines, where such requisitions will be routed via the Quartermaster General. Due to the expense involved in the manufacture of special sized uniforms and the necessary delay involved in filling such requisitions, every effort will be made to outfit individuals with standard sized articles or articles that may be altered in accordance with local contracts. The following certificate shall appear on Form NAVMC 912SD (Rev.) and shall be signed by the commanding officer:

“Forwarded. After careful fitting it has been determined that the individual named hereon cannot be fitted from stock sized garments. The measurements shown hereon have been veri

1. Articles of individual clothing will not be carried on the Marine Corps property account by size, except by depots and similar activities maintaining stock accounts. Such articles will be accounted for by quantity and standard name of article, at currently established prices, regardless of size. However, accountable officers, except those at depots and similar activities maintaining stock accounts, shall maintain subsidiary records by size of clothing on hand, on order and issued. This is necessary in order that replenishment of stock by size may be effected on the basis of local issue records. In the case of enlisted men, as an aid to initial stocking only, the Quartermaster General of the Marine Corps publishes in the form of a Tariff Size Bulletin in the Catalog of U. S. Marine Corps Material, a standard size tariff for all sized clothing items based on issues to 1,000 average Marines. Under no circumstances should this tariff be used as a basis for replenishment requisition for items on which local issue records by sizes are available.

2. Enlisted personnel of the Volunteer Reserve on training duty for six months or less will be issued clothing within allowances prescribed by pertinent allowance publications. Clothing will be issued only as required up to the limits prescribed. Clothing issued in this manner will not be dropped from the property account at the time of issue. An individual memorandum receipt on Form NAVMC 604-SD (Rev.), will be obtained from the enlisted man at time of issue. Upon completion of the training duty all ornaments and outer garments of uniform clothing except worn shoes and headgear will be recovered and appropriate deletions will be made from the individual's memorandum receipt.
