By their own hand

By their own hand

Inspired by the phrase "Death caused by injuries inflicted by own hand" which I first saw in the service record of a soldier who shot himself while serving in India, this community remembers the tormented people who made the decision to take their own lives. It includes some of those who committed suicide while in service, or who did so later due to a war-related reason or illness. The community also includes some of those who attempted suicide. (These people often then found themselves in court, or facing a court martial, because suicide was illegal.) Recognising the sensitivity of the circumstances of the deaths of the people in this community, if any relatives have any issues about the information displayed about individuals, or are unduly distressed by it, please email me.
