Reference: Initialled copy letter from MacSwiney Scope and Content: Initialled copy letter from MacSwiney to C.S. (Chief of Staff, Richard Mulcahy) concerning an inquiry on discipline among the Irish Volunteers. Records that although the great majority of City Volunteers are well disciplined and obedient the true idea of a soldier's discipline is only found in a limited number and that this is particularly emphasised in the countryside where Volunteers take a much more civilian standpoint. Notes that some officers have issued unauthorised orders or shown a want of judgement and is therefore in full agreement with a classification scheme for offenses and punishment and would be willing to contribute to any publication on discipline or moral training.
