Notes

  • 1. There was also a page of printed text detailing how the form F1 was to be filled out.
  • 2. The F1 form had /// ie. strokes marked on each line as each instance of the questions was answered. These strokes (omitted here if present) were then added up to produce the number at the end of the line.
