HC Deb 25 October 1962 vol 664 c225W
Mr. Mason

asked the Secretary of State for War how many soldiers have died whilst serving in the Middle East and Far East during the last twelve months; and how many were buried at their respective stations.

Mr. Profumo

Figures for the last twelve months are not immediately available. In 1961, however, 35 soldiers died in the Middle East and 31 in the Far East. All but one of these were buried locally.
