I've spent a bit of time researching those who died on operations whilst serving in the Corps. I've obviously had to put a cut-off point somewhere so I chose 1968. For one thing it's famous for being the only year of the 20th century when no British soldiers were killed on active service (officially at least). It also marks the time when the withdrawal from empire was more or less complete, the future being a long campaign in Ulster and the Cold War. I would hazard a guess that the careers of most ARRSE users fit into the '1968 to 2009 or Somewhere In-Between' timeframe. Some of the info is pretty thin on the ground, especially with regard to the First Gulf War so please help out if you can. Me being me, I'm sure I've ballsed-up spellings and dates etc so please post any corrections. I've also only included deaths on ops. Perhaps we can add a section for non-operational fatalities if anyone has any info?
