What follows is a partial list of casualties. It appears to be incomplete; sadly, I cannot remember where I found it and so cannot track it down and give a link to it. It also does not include dates; assuming it is chronological, it probably goes through about the end of May—the Belgians were killed on 7 April, and Capt. Mbaye on 31 May. The first ten on the list are the same Belgians listed above, but I’ve included them again for the sake of completeness. Note that some of the Belgians’ ranks and even names are inconsistent with the other list.
