The Official History of the Great War - Medical Series is online at archive.org. I cannot recall whether there is a Statistics volume but the stats are probably in the Diseases volume (cannot recall if there are 1 or 2).

Apologies for accidental strikethrough!

Hi Mancpaul

 

Apart from looking at printed sources, when you have time you might like to look at divisional war diaries for the Assistant Director Medical Services.

 

The particular one I  have been looking at was for 2 Division in 1916, downloaded from the TNA - £3.50 per item. It goes into considerable detail about the conditions being treated.

Simon,

Not exactly statistics but I've extracted some dysentry information from DMS 4th Army diary. I also noticed a small number of sheets (not included) giving Admissions of infectious diseases but I doubt there were more than 6 men with suspected dysentry or dysentry (Shigs).
