|Table showing figures for the demobilisation
of British and empire troops, 1919.
As this table illustrates, the huge logistical challenge of demobilising
the armies of the British empire was well under way by early 1919.
It covers all of the troops stationed in Mesopotamia, India, Egypt
and Salonika, as well as the ANZAC, Indian and Chinese troops serving
on the Western Front. Although armies of occupation were left behind
in many of the former areas of military conflict, the vast majority
of troops were speedily released from military service.
