What is the meaning of this line?

I came through this line

Things were a bit slack in those days - there was a war to win!

What is the meaning of slack here?

Could be several meanings, for example:

They didn't really stick to the rules in those days -
Business was a bit quiet in those days -

PS: you didn't come "through" this line: you came "across" it :mrgreen:
"We are not wholly bad or good, who live our lives under Milk Wood"

Sometimes it's difficult to understand meaning of a sentence.
