The long delay in settling accounts or denial of much expected payments and compulsory return of kits aggravated the discontent among naval subalterns. The entire system seemed unjust and intolerable to the lower deck. This feeling conflicted with their sense of loyalty to the service and was well reflected in the poster that was found in HMIS Kak(lwl, a demobilization centre at Versova, which housed over 1400 ratings.

Jives from different camps to air their grievances and to bring home to their countrymen their anxiety to be repatriated.
