The list is nowhere near complete as is often the case with contemporary newspapers. Missing from the list of KIA are:

734 Col. Sgt. J. Johnson
1978 Sgt. Dmr. W. Williams
3657 Sgt. J. Connor
4355 L/Cpl. E. Grainger
4292 L/Cpl. G. Leach
5266 Pte. W. Ashley
4198 Pte. R. Bird
5316 Pte. H. Bostock
4600 Pte. T. Brownhill
3817 Pte. J. Hanley
4114 Pte. P. Hartley
4822 Pte. J. Loftus
5373 Pte. A. Longbottom
4872 Pte. J. Murphy

Milton/Fitton should be Mitton
Batley should be 3736 Pte. S. Bartley
Leigh shouldn't be in the list as he wasn't KIA

I haven't checked the list of wounded closely but there are omissions there too. I have the QSA medal of 5100 Pte. J. Brown who was wounded at the battle of Wagon Hill/Caesar's Camp but who isn't listed. (I also have the medals of five of the men KIA).
