Proportion of Officer that read our Doctrine

I am in the process of writing a dissertation on Iraq, focusing on the Implementation British doctrine.

A while ago i remember reading about how many (of few) British officers had actually read the doctrine before deploying. I seem to have made a bit of an error and i have been unable to find it in my notes.

does anyone know where i could find this reference? or something similar.
