green end-papers; written primarily for the Royal Air Force but equally applicable to the Army; Every officer is expected to obey certain unwritten laws. There are no regulations or written instructions to assist the newly commissioned officer in most of these matters. If he seeks guidance from those in authority over him, he usually receives the unsatisfactory reply that this is " done" or " not done" because it is the " Custom of the Service." He is liable to make many unfortunate mistakes before he learns from experience the numerous unwritten customs he is expected to comply with. This small book is intended to assist those officers who have been commissioned from the ranks or direct from civil life, few of whom will have had any experience of, or opportunity of studying, " Service etiquette" or " Customs of the Service."
