Since the end of World War 2 which British PM has ruled over the deaths of the most British soldiers?
What's the reason for this question? Research or antagonism?
Personal curiosity. The number of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghan is rising constantly and this got me thinking as to which PM has ruled over the deaths of most British troops.

I would have to go with Churchill too. Sources seem to vary, but at approximately 700 KIA, Korea is to date the bloodiest post-WW2 conflict in which the UK armed Forces have been engaged. Although the war broke out before he was elected, the main British effort in the conflict occurred during his premiership. To that you have to add the casualties from the ongoing Malayan Emergency and the start of the Mau-Mau uprising in Kenya (although Army casualties in the latter were not numerous).

Unlikely, see my comment above ref- Churchill. Without going back to the books, I'd say that there were approx 350-400 regular UK military KIA during her terms of office. Just over 250 from the Falklands and the rest from NI related incidents. I have to admit that the latter is a conservative (no pun intended) estimate, and may be a little higher in reality.

By the way, it's "who's killed the most?" not, "Whose killed the most?"
So he didn't mean 'claw hammer', then? My bad.

Still Churchill, though.

Oh, it hasn't altered the title bar in peoples individual posts.



I'm actually quite pi$$ed off with myself for this because I am always moaning about other peoples spelling/gramatical errors! :x
