HC Deb 10 November 1981 vol 12 c66W
19. Mr. Hoyle

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many casualties have been received by military personnel which have been caused by terrorist attacks over the past 12 years.

Mr. Wiggin

Since 1969, 461 Servicemen have been killed and 3, 710 have been injured as a result of terrorist attacks in Northern Ireland. Information about casualties outside Northern Ireland for the same period is not readily available. However, in 1981, 8 soldiers have been injured, all in the bomb attack on the Irish Guards in London and the Commandant General Royal Marines was similarly attacked.
