Lariam Op Telic 1

This request has had an unusual response, and requires attention from the WhatDoTheyKnow team.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I wish to request copies of documents you hold to state if Lariam was given to those serving in Iraq in 2003/04 (OpTelic) 1
I wish to have copies of orders placed, receipts and confirmation of if those on the above tours were given this Anti malarial.
If possible i would like copies of any Anti malaria Drugs given to my unit Highland Band of the Scottish division attached first with 33 field hospital and then 202 field hospital.

Yours faithfully,

Grant Thomson

Dear SG SecFin-Sec Gp Mailbox (MULTIUSER),

This answer is very unsatisfactory, I appreciate that this request would take allot of work but you could of at least worked up to the limit of scope (3.5 working days) instead you have given reasons not to even attempt this work because of limitations.
I have my own personal Medical records but unfortunately as this was issued like a peace of kit and not prescribed like it should, I have no evidence of what i actually took.
Based on the FOI for 2007 the MOD gave Lariam to thousands of soldiers and 54% don't have any record of what they took.

-This is what i would like to know-

(I would like to see copies of orders placed with quantities included, receipts and confirmation of the issuing/supplying of Lariam/Mefloquine on op Telic 1. Quantities used and any resupply needed.)
I don't expect personalized information but an over view of facts regarding op Telic 1 specifically January 2003 until 2004

Yours sincerely,

Grant Thomson
