You don’t realize how many fates there are until you read the casualty list:

  • Killed in action
  • Died
  • Wounded
  • Dangerously ill
  • Seriously ill
  • Presumed to have died
  • Unofficially prisoner
  • Died of wounds
  • Believed killed
  • Missing
  • Shell shock
  • Prisoner of war
  • Accidentally killed

I heard that they used to execute the shell shocked casualties but some of them come home now.
