Gazetted: Despatches from the front line through to British Army personnel decorations, officer commissions, appointments, promotions and casualties were all gazetted in the London Gazette, the official newspaper of record for the United Kingdom. It has been recording national and international events since November 1665, in its first incarnation as The Oxford Gazette.[1] Chiefly in British English, the transitive verb to gazette means "to announce or publish in a gazette."[2]
