At least 189 British soldiers, regulars and reservists, have been wounded in action in Iraq, the Ministry of Defence said yesterday. Of the 97 who have died, 64 are known to have been killed as a result of hostile action.

Of those wounded, 109 had to be flown back to Britain for treatment. The total number of soldiers treated at Shaibah military hospital near Basra since the invasion is 5,833. Of these, 1,468 were evacuated to the UK. Most of those admitted to Shaibah were treated for illnesses, according to the MoD.

There is no single database for all non-fatal military casualties in Iraq.
Ummm...how do we track our people through the system then?

Probably the same way reservists are tracked through the system i.e. a spreadsheet with different coloured cells...

I am more than a number. I am a person with a name and my own thoughts.

In peace time, if you report sick or are injured, you are included in the J97 stats. These are a collation the types of injury / illnesses affecting the Army, Regiments are to return their J97 figures monthly. I'm not sure if the same system applies during wartime, perhaps someone can enlighten us? Whichever system is in place (and I'm sure there is one), I would be a bit apprehensive as to the accuracy of the figures anyway, due to the fact that there is no box to tick for 'Bluffer / malingerer!' :D
