Another question is, the leave and pass can be given on a daily basis (i.e. for a day or longer). Related to this, it seems that when soldiers are allowed to take just hours off, not a day or longer, it is processed through a form called 'Leave Pass' which I attached to this question.

I wonder if there is a seperate name - preferably an official one - for time off granted for less than a day.
