HC Deb 12 April 1920 vol 127 c1390W
Captain BROWN

asked the Secretary of State for War the names of the British units engaged on the North-West Frontier of India during the past 12 months; their casualties; and the total casualties of the British and Indian forces?


I am unable to give the complete list of British units which have served on the North-West Frontier, with the casualties sustained by each of them during the last twelve months, but if the hon. and gallant Member wishes I will ask the Government of India to supply the information. The total British casualties on the North-West Frontier reported during the last twelve months is 333 of all ranks. Details of casualties amongst Indian rank and file are not always reported to this country, and I am therefore unable to give figures.
