A transferred Air Force member appealed a settlement which held him liable for excess costs associated with shipment of his household goods. The items were ordered by the member prior to the effective date of transfer but were not delivered until after the transfer was accomplished. These goods cannot be shipped at Government expense. The question of whether authorized weights were exceeded in the shipment of household goods is a matter for administrative determination.
