Treatment of officers
    ARTICLE 44

    Officers and prisoners of equivalent status shall be treated with the regard due to their rank and age.
    In order to ensure service in officers' camps, other ranks of the same armed forces who, as far as possible, speak the same language, shall be assigned in sufficient numbers, account being taken of the rank of officers and prisoners of equivalent status. Such orderlies shall not be required to perform any other work.
    Supervision of the mess by the officers themselves shall be facilitated in every way.
