5. AT DISPERSAL STATION. Immediately on de-
training, all troops are taken to Dispersal Station,
where they
(a) Hand in their equipment.
(b) Sign and receive their final Discharge Cer-
ficate [Certificate]
(c) Receive their cheques for Pay and Allowances
to the approximate date of discharge. In
order to assist the soldier in getting away
quickly this cheque was made out on board
ship, as explained in paragraph 1 (b). The
date to which payment is made may be a
few days under or over actual date of dis-
charge, and if the soldier is therefore under-
paid or overpaid by a few days the necessary
adjustment will be made on his next pay-
ment of War Gratuity.
(d) Each soldier will receive a railroad ticket
or warrant direct to his ultimate destina-
tion.
6. LEAVING THE DISPERSAL STATION. The sol-
dier, if in receipt of his Discharge Certificate, is now
free from military service, and is entitled to take up
civilian occupation, and in this respect he will be
given every possible assistance by other departments
of the Government
