—(1) Subject to the provisions of this Act, the Armed Forces Council may, from time to time, make regulations of procedure with regard to any matter or thing that is expedient or necessary for the purpose of carrying this Act into execution so far as relates to the investigation, trial and punishment of offences triable or punishable by subordinate military courts under this Act.
(2) Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (1), the regulations of procedure may make provision with respect to all or any of the following matters:

the procedure to be observed in trials by subordinate military courts;
the preparation of charge-sheets and the framing of charges;
procuring the attendance of witnesses before a subordinate military court;
empowering a subordinate military court in such cases and to such extent as may be prescribed to amend the charge which is being tried by a subordinate military court;
empowering a subordinate military court, where the particulars proved or admitted at the trial differ from those alleged in the charge but are sufficient to support a finding of guilt of the like offences as that charged, to make a finding of guilt, subject to exceptions or variations specified in the finding, if it appears to the court that the difference is not so material as to prejudice the accused in his defence;
determining cases in which and the extent to which subordinate military courts may in sentencing the accused for any offence of which he is convicted at the request of the accused, take into consideration other offences under this Act committed by him;
the procedure to be observed when an accused is suspected to be of unsound mind and the procedure to be followed when an accused is sentenced to death;
the forms of orders to be made under the provisions of this Act relating to investigation of, the trial of, or award of punishments for offences under this Act;
