A Navy member requested reconsideration of a settlement disallowing his claim for reimbursement of the costs of shipping certain household goods incident to a permanent change of station. Although shipment of the member's household goods was made in several lots from various origins, since the actual cost to the Government was less than the estimated costs of direct shipment in one lot, the full cost may be allowed. In the absence of evidence that title to some goods still in the possession of the manufacturer had passed to the member prior to the effective date of the permanent change of station order, the member was not entitled to shipment of such items at Government expense.
