My British squad led by Wright states:

2 1
2 1 Actions
8 9 Range 0 Hit
Ranged Attacks

I'm confused about the Range 0 Hit vs the words "Ranged Attack". Is the squad's range a 0 or 1 (the next card)?

Squadie Wright (private John Wright of Tumbledown, Essex) isn't very good with his weapon - he can't hit anything beyond the location he is in - and he needs to roll an 8+ (9+ if wounded) to hit. But until wounded he has two actions - so could move and shoot or shoot twice without the use of action cards.

Ranged weapon is usually a gun, thrown is usually a grenade.
So his attack counts as a Ranged attack - some action cards improve this type of attack - but some locations gives cover from ranged attacks but not thrown or melee.

Given Squadie Wright isn't very likely to get many EKIA (both a success with the d10 and the d6 when he attacks) - why would you take him into harms way...
he is cheap arrrh
he has two actions - so even if he doesn't kill many enemies he could suppress them surprise
he is another warm body.. and when the hate is coming hot - he might cop it rather than a more capable soldier.. whistleshake

There's a German squaddie who is a lousy shot, but has 4 health points. Took him along on my very first mission. Why? I'd looked through the action deck while unwrapping and admired the card "Self Sacrifice".

Yeah, just in case...
