A repeated image of a soldier running which suggests the repetition of procedures, a trait that epitomises the army's rigid discipline whose tactics for survival depended on routine. Two 'identity discs' made from printing plates are beneath the photo etching. The work comments on the enduring impact of the war experience on soldiers and their families.
