SIR MANCHERJEE BHOWNAG-GREE (Bethnal Green, N.E.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he can state what number of British Indian subjects have been employed in the Indian Ambulance Corps from the date of its organisation in connection with the operations in South Africa, how many of them have been wounded and killed; if a full list of the persons so employed is kept; and whether in the case of their being wounded or killed, intimation thereof is duly conveyed to the Indian authorities and published for the information of their relatives and friends.
§ *MR. WYNDHAM
There is no nominal roll of such persons in this country. Approximately there are about 1,300 Indian subjects employed in connection with the campaign in South Africa, of whom the majority are employed with the Army Medical Department. Four have been killed and seven wounded. The Government of India is informed by the military authorities in South Africa of all casualties amongst the Indian contingent.
