    Explanation
    During World War 1, soldiers were exposed to harsh conditions and traumatic experiences that led to various physical and mental illnesses. STDs were common due to the soldiers' close proximity and lack of protection. Trench foot, caused by prolonged exposure to wet and unsanitary conditions, was also prevalent. Shell shock, now known as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), was a common mental illness caused by the extreme stress and trauma of war. However, bulimia nervosa, an eating disorder characterized by binge eating followed by purging, was not commonly observed among soldiers during WW1.

    Men who joined the army in WW1 were under the impression that the war would be over by Christmas. This belief was based on the optimistic and naive expectations of the soldiers who thought that the war would be short-lived and quickly resolved. Unfortunately, the reality of the war proved to be much different, with the conflict lasting for several years and resulting in immense loss of life and destruction. The soldiers' initial hopes for a swift resolution were shattered as they faced the harsh realities of trench warfare and the prolonged nature of the conflict.

    If soldiers disrespected their officers, they would be _________

    Correct Answer
    shot
    Explanation
    Soldiers who disrespect their officers would face severe consequences, such as being shot. This punishment serves as a deterrent and maintains discipline within the military hierarchy. Disrespect towards officers undermines the chain of command, compromises teamwork, and can jeopardize the success of military operations. Therefore, the strict consequence of being shot is meant to ensure obedience and respect towards superiors, fostering a culture of discipline and order in the military.

The introduction of conscription in Australia was a highly controversial issue during World War 1, with two referendums held in 1916 and 1917 to decide whether conscription should be implemented. Both referendums were defeated, meaning that conscription was not introduced during the war.
