NOTE—(1) In the case of non-gazetted government servants to whom note 11 to Form no. 2 or note 4 to Form no. 3 or no. 3-A applies, an additional question should be inserted to obtain the information required under that note.

NOTE 2—With the exception of privilege leave earned in a Civil Department which should be taken first, a military officer in civil employ may set off the leave he takes against the civil leave or military leave at his credit, as he likes. When Form 5 is sent to such an officer question 10 should be added in manuscript. Is the leave to be set off against the military leave or against civil leave at your credit? The answer should be noted on his leave-salary certificates.

NOTE 3—Where subscriptions or recoveries relate to Sterling Branches this should be indicated clearly against question 9.
