The requested data is provided in the attached spreadsheet.

The data has been compiled by defence officials from a variety of sources, including pay records, Personnel files, patrol reporting and other archived records. Some data was destroyed in 2011 during a significant fire in the Camp Bastian Labour Support Unit which limits assurance. In particular there is a very small difference between the total recorded as commencing and of ceasing employment over the entire period.
