    Soldier A - Z:     Soldiers with a letter are the designation given by the 1972 Widgery Inquiry and refer to those soldiers who fired live rounds on 30 January 1972.
    Soldier 001 - 999:     Soldiers with a number are the designation given by the 1972 Widgery Inquiry and refer to those soldiers who did NOT fire live rounds on 30 January 1972 but who provided a statement to the Widgery Inquiry (whether or not called to give envidence).
    Soldier INQ0001 - INQ9999:     Designation given by the second (Saville) Inquiry to those soldiers who were interviewed and provided a statement for the first time.
    Soldier UNK001 - UNK999:     Designation given by the second (Saville) Inquiry to those soldiers who where unknown to the Inquiry. These soldiers may have been recorded in a photograph or mentioned by witness. In some instances soldiers with a 'UNK' were later to be identified as having given a statement and thus had an 'INQ' code.
    Officer A - Z:     Designation given by the second (Saville) Inquiry to those officers who were part of the intelligence operations of the Ministry of Defence.
