This chapter begins with a consideration of disciplinary problems in Irish regular battalions serving on the Western Front during 1916. The discipline and morale of the 10th (Irish) Division at Gallipoli and Salonika are evaluated. The experiences of the 16th (Irish) and 36th (Ulster) Divisions in adapting to active service are considered, especially in terms of their courts martial records. The experiences of the 10th (Irish) Division at Gallipoli and Salonika, the 16th (Irish) Division at Hulluch and Ginchy, and the 36th (Ulster) Division at Thiepval are also assessed with an emphasis on discipline. Furthermore, the impact of the Easter Rising on Irish units serving on the Western Front is assessed. Finally, consideration is given to the development of measures, official and unofficial, designed to maintain morale.
