This painting is dedicated to those whose despair was so great they saw suicide as their only option.
The portrait in the left quadrant is that of Corporal John James Gordon, ‘Jamie’ McMullin who took his own life on June 17, 2011.
The work and lives of these soldiers is deeply appreciated and we honour them.
