You mention unlisted casualties; especially in NFF. Does this happen frequently? Are they battle casualties or wilful missing or sick? If an unlisted casualty, are there other sources to check? I am aware that the term "casualty" does not necessarily mean a battle injury or illness or POW - it can mean a number of things. For example, the other day I was looking at an OZ WW2 record and under the heading "casualty" was all sorts of things; like transfers and medical treatment which was not battle-caused or even active-service-caused.

Hello Ian

I am building a revised & corrected casualty list at www.boerwarregister.com . My definition of "casualty" includes killed, wounded, injured (non-battle), POW and deserted - all these are found in the official casualty roll. I have not yet included those sent to hospital who survived their illness - these lists were printed in the newspapers.

The most common missing category from the official casualty roll is POW and deserter. Missing POWs are not from "litle" actions but include officers captured at Nicholson's Nek and Colenso for instance.
