    The size of the list emphasises the contribution of this group whose deeds are most times forgotten.

    Their death rate per capita being worse than the US marines tells the story.

    Very much the forgotten and overlooked service and with these casualty rates they do not deserved to be.

    I was amazed at the numbers ...... looks to me like the Americans did quite a bit during the war ! ( in spite of what some might say !! )
