§ 47. Brigadier-General CROFT
asked what is the approximate total square mileage of territory conquered, or re-conquered, by British Armies since 1st July, 1916?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Forster)
The total square mileage of territory conquered or reconquered by British Armies in all theatres since 1st July, 1916, is about 128,000 square miles. This figure is necessarily only approximate, as in some theatres of war no hard-and-fast line can be drawn between territory in enemy and British occupation on a given date.
