§ 52. Mr. R. Edwards
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will make a statement on the circumstances in which a number of British Service men have lost their lives while on patrol in the Sheikhdom of Oman.
§ Mr. Profumo
I am not aware of any incident in which members of the British Army serving in Oman have lost their lives, since that in Apil, 1962, when two soldiers were killed by lightning.
