Where a unit is working in an area for which a D.A.D.L. has not been appointed, the return L/2 will be sent to the O.C. Group headquarters.

Cols. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, will invariably be completed at all base Ports and Depots. At other places the information should be inserted when circumstances permit.

Where a party works for more than one Employer on the same day, separate entries must be made for each task.


This form enables the O.C. Group to check the number of non-effectives, and to see where his units are working and how they are distributed.

Colums 2, 3, and 4 are compiled from Company returns and the other columns from the L/1 returns.

Column 5.- In the case of labour employed at Ports, care must be taken to show in this column only men employed under D. Docks and not men who may be working inside the Dock Area, but are employed by D. Ordnance, D. Supplies, or other Employers.


This form is to enable the D.A.D.L. to allot the labour available. The strength will show the number of effectives available for working parties. Where practicable, the number of N.C.O.s and men available in each platoon should be shewn separately.


This form is compiled weekly by D.A.D.L. from the returns L/2 received by him from O.s C. Companies. Where a unit is working in an Area for which a D.A.D.L. has not been appointed, the return L/5 will be compiled by the O.C. Group Headquarters from L/2.

Column 2. - "Effectives" means labourers of working parties.


This form is used for Bases and Ports only and is compiled by the D.A.D.L. At Bases where no D.A.D.L. has been appointed, the form will be completed by the Senior Labour Officer.

Column 8.- Tonnage moved from stack to shed or vice versa should be included.

In compiling the report care must be taken to ensure that men are not counted twice over - i.e., not shown under two Employers at once. The difficulty arises from the fact that in some cases men employed by other Employers than D. Docks are engaged upon work inside the Docks Area.

The same applies to tonnage which is dumped temporarily on the quay and then immediately moved to train or stack. Any special circumstances of this kind adversely affecting work per
