OPERATIONAL INSTRUCTIONS NUMBER 93
1. The object of these instructions is to effect a reduction in the number of men required to guard captured enemy ammunition dumps.
2. Where practicable these dumps will be wired off and posted with signs in English, Italian and Slovene as follows:
3. Units will ensure that fences and signs are adequate to prevent curious, innocent persons from getting injured.
4. Regular inspections will be made of these dumps to determine if they are being pilfered. If pilferage of any great extent is discovered it will be necessary to again place guards on the dump.
5. Dumps containing small arms ammunition, hand grenades, or other ammunition of weapons that could readily be used against Allied personnel will be guarded by troops.
6. Where it is not practicable to fence off and mark a dump, the present method of using guards must be continued.
7. In no case will the lives of American soldiers be endangered by attempting to move any high explosives.
8. Where any change is made in the method of guarding enemy ammunition dumps a report will be made to the next higher headquarters.
