I think you meant the other way round.Slim knowing that fit young men do what fit young men do he set up medical inspections of sites frequented by soldiers. Unfortunately this got back to the UK and questions were asked in the House by a lady upset by the armies lack of morals. Slim was told to stop making it easy for soldiers to take part in these activities.
I think the lady was also the same one who complained that the 8th army was sunning it in Italy when real soldiers were fighting on the beaches.
It was mentioned on my Hygiene course many years ago that 1945 the the first year in the war when more soldiers died from disease then enemy action.
As far as brothels went Montgomery proposed controlling brothels from the health point of view as well.
