I don't know the numbers who served for other countries but about 5 million served from Britain. About 88% of them came home.John

Out of our family who served,0% came home.

All French 'citizens' now.

Be warned, there are lies, damn lies, and statistics.

The true number of dead will never be known.

A walk around my local cemetries near Granton on Spey, (in Scotland) Would give you a few names of soldiers who died from wounds as late as 1937.

My Dad swears his Dad, my Grandad, died from the effects of Gas in 1944.

In fact, from that perspective we know exactly how many died, 100% . All a matter of time.
