HC Deb 03 May 1881 vol 260 c1661

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he can state what is the total loss of killed and wounded in battle, and incapacitated from sickness among Her Majesty's troops in the late war with the Boers, and what is the approximate estimate of loss among the camp followers and teamsters?


As soon as the hon. Member placed his Question upon the Paper I telegraphed to Sir Evelyn Wood for information on the subject. I cannot expect to receive an answer to my telegram for some days.
