David, I have no real knowledge of war time systems but I know that as a soldier individuals were responsible for their kit and were held accountable for any losses. There were stores that were "A" class stores that any loss constituted a court martial.
In a combat zone the rules changed dramatically and the stores delivered to those on the front were generally "written off" on arrival. I have heard stories from old soldiers from both sides of the counter in the RQMS's store. Some of the accounting rules will ever remain unwritten.

Carrier Armoured O.P. No1 Mk3 W. T84991
Carrier Bren No2.Mk.I. NewZealand Railways. NZR.6.
Dodge WC55. 37mm Gun Motor Carriage M6
Jeep Mb #135668
So many questions....
