Vehicles arrive eithor from. the USSR or from Soviet units and departments in the Soviet Zone. Those arriving from the USSR are frequently sent back them et'ter repair; vehicles belonging to the Kiev, Lion scow, lhite Russian and Daltic ~:i itary Dis- tricts among others are known to have been repaired in Jurzon. Each vehicle nust have with it on arrival a repair certificate pm-p,red by the Vehicle Ad_rin:i.s tration in Potsdam and bearing the sta; ip and signature of the O.C. cf the unit to .Much it belongs. 8. Every three months the Vehicle administration in Potsdam allots. to all units a quota of vehicles to be repaired during that period. Under no circumstances can this quota be exceeded. If attempts are made to exceed it, a sabotago twitch-hunt begins. Consequently units in the Soviet Zone frequently have large numbers of vehicles off the road? because their quota has not been sufficient to keep pace with the accident and damage rate. 9. Vehicle transport trains from the USSR are usually in the charge of a senior N.C.O. or Junior Lieutenant. The vehicle guard consists of 3. to 7 enlisted men. The guard and the officer or N.C.O. in charge return to the USSR on the next av,..ilable transport. 10. The rorkshop guard at :Jurzen consists of 21. Volkspoliziston under the command of a Poliniei rwachl r jster. 11.. The following norms wore laid down by the Vehicle Administration in Potsdam for the ~iurzer. wworkshop : complete overhaul of a '?ord' truck was not to take More than 106 working hours, of a 'Studebaker' not more than 235 wort ,.ng hours and of a ' ZIS-5' not more than 10 working hours. 12.
