Eight hundred and eighty-seven thousand is the amount of UK combatants lost during WW1. Add to that a further nine hundred and fifty thousand Commonwealth soldiers lost during the same conflict and that total rises to nearly two million combat deaths.

By comparison, the loss of three hundred and eighty-three thousand UK military personnel during WW2 seems almost insignificant. Of course, they were not.

When you factor in all the other countries that were involved in the two world wars including the USA (more than 400,00 lives lost during WW2) and Russia (1.7 million deaths during WW1 and a staggering 6.5 million during WW2) you begin to see the scale of losses that these two wars have produced around the globe.

Even then these figures take no account of civilian losses. Nor do they include the volumes of lives lost by the German and Austrian nations who also suffered terribly during these conflicts. Then there were the French, Belgians, Dutch, Czechs, Poles and even the Japanese. The list goes on and on….
