Bodies of British Soldiers missing and never found ( or exhumed and reburied )

1. Year of the Disappearances gives a list for Cork only from Dept of Defence papers MA A/07304

2. There are at least two relevant sets of papers in Dublin that need to be examined to investigate the missing soldiers. Collins Papers of the Missing A0909 , and A07304 (suspected deserters). Excerpts from Collins Papers show that there was reluctance by the British to get involved in the business of bodies in bogs. I have the complete Collins Papers of the Missing A0909, which appears to cover higher profile cases that the British were pursuing for whatever reason
