N.B.—Tlie nbni'e figures for cost of j>cr.ionnel represent, not the normal coxt of the troojut, but the amounts provided for their maintenance in the Estimates of the year. Owiiiy to the existence of surplus stocks of stores and clothing, these amounts are considerably below the normal cost.

[table]

(a) The figures given above omit all expenditure which is merely a matter of account, i.e., the clothing, stores, &c., issued on repayment, as well as the Deferred Pay, Gratuities on Discharge and Non-Effective Pay of the Army in India.
