In examinations which are not competitive the exercises in Languages are restricted to translation.

It is desirable that the Candidate should be conversant with one Foreign Language (French or German, for instance), and with the general outlines of History, although an examination in these branches of knowledge will not be insisted on.

On account of the peculiar knowledge required from Candidates for these Clerkships, "it has for the present been decided that Non-commissioned Officers from the Royal Artillery and Royal Sappers and Miners alone should be admitted as competitors."
