HC Deb 24 March 1944 vol 398 c1217W
Mr. Lipson

asked the Secretary of State for War how long it normally takes before the next-of-kin is informed when a soldier has been wounded or killed in the Italian campaign.

Sir J. Grigg

The time taken depends to a considerable extent on the circumstances in which the casualty occurs, and on the state of communications. Recently it has been about two to three weeks.
