Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I have read how delayed demobilisation after the last war led to disaffection and mutiny among the troops: but it seems that part of the reason there was that the troops concerned, back in camps and depots from the fighting fronts, found themselves condemned to day after weary day of "soldering" -spit and polish run mad-as the only occupation the officers of those days could think of as an alternative to fighting.'
