Casualties - Mendacious MoD at it again

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:


    Yesterday the MoD confirmed that casualties admitted to field medical facilities — units staffed by a doctor and nurses — and later returned to the front were not counted as "wounded in action".

    "The people we do not collate are those who do not need to be admitted but are treated in the field and returned to duty," a spokesman said. "To collate the statistics for every single admission would be difficult and it also begs the question about where you draw the line. It is very difficult often to say whether someone has been injured in action or it is a non-combat injury."

    Where do they get PR people with the front to make ridiculous statements like that to the press?

    What complete and utter nonsense, bordering upon deliberate mis-information.
