Can anyone confirm how many Brigadier Generals and above were KIA/DOW during WW1 please? I have an un-sourced list revealing the figure of 174 with the highest ranking that being of Lt General Mercer during the battle of Mount Sorrel near Ypres in 1916. Most people I speak to on this subject say they thought one was killed falling off his wine box. Pathetic statement I know but that seems to just about represent the feelings of most when discussing this subject. I personally run with the first relevation or there abouts.
