Discussing the Dominion's oasualty list, which a Press Association message stated yesterday totalled 57,929 in killed and wounded on March 31, . the Minister of Defence .said this Morning 1 that as published the list was misleading. There had. been this number of casualties, it was true, but many of them recovered and had been discharged, though on the other hand a certain percentage of wounded would be permanently disabled. Altogether 1449 officers had been gazetted out of the service, while 31,986 non-ccumiissioned , officers and men had been discharged • from the Main Expeditionary Force, in j. 1 addition to which 1357 officers and i| men had been gazetted out and dis- j charged form the Samoa force of occu- j. pation, making a total of 34,792 offi- j cers and men, a large proportion of i whom had returned to New Zealand as casualties. At the present time, added the Minister, there were in the [Dominion 616 hospital in-patients, 617 in convalescent homes, 2704 out-pa- | tients, and 240 on sick leave, making j a further 3977 men. Sir James added that he hoped the last of our sick and wounded soldiers would leave England this month.
