A soldier, in British English, is a thin strip of bread or toast; the soldiers that a slice is cut into are reminiscent of soldiers on parade. The toast is sliced in this manner so that it can be dipped into a soft boiled egg that has had the top of its shell removed. Many people also enjoy "vegemite soldiers" in Australia or "marmite soldiers" in the UK which follow the same principle and are spread with Vegemite or Marmite respectively.
