In the Hanging Tree Alexander Seawoll says two officers lost are two many. I am sure one of them he is referring to is Lesley May. Unless he is referring to Grant himself, which is unlikely, is there another officer who has been incapacitated or killed that i am not aware of? I've read all the books and comics and can't see any reference to another officer being taken off duty because of this.

I thought of it as the first officer lost is Lesley May (Seawoll's favourite). And I think that Seawoll fears that if Sahra Guleed gets too involved with the Folly, she too would ultimately be lost. Hence two lost officers... But that's just how I think.I am rufus (talk) 12:13, June 17, 2018 (UTC)

He could be talking about DC Philip Purdy who was invalided out after the events of Moon over Soho. But I agree it's more probable that he's thinking of Guleed as The Hanging Tree does mention she's another of Seawoll's favourites, like Lesley.
