§ MR. C. P. B. MCLAREN (Leicester, Bosworth)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India how many officers and men of the British forces have been killed, and how many wounded, in the operations on the Frontier; and how many officers and men have died of their wounds and of disease since the operations commenced.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Lord G. HAMILTON)
The following are the latest figures in 364 my possession:—Killed: 43 British officers of British and Native regiments; 146 British soldiers; 310 Native officers and soldiers. Wounded: 91 British officers of British and Native regiments; 419 British soldiers; 900 native officers and soldiers. But I have not received complete returns of the casualties among the Native troops, nor of deaths from disease. A telegram on the subject has been sent to the Government of India.
