ShareThisSuicide kills more British soldiers and veterans than Afghan war 15 Jul 2013 The UK’s Ministry of Defence has confirmed more British soldiers and veterans committed suicide last year than died while fighting in Afghanistan. Last year seven serving British soldiers killed themselves, while a further 14 died in suspected suicides, not yet confirmed by inquest. The British government does not keep a record of suicides by former military personnel, but an investigation by the BBC’s Panorama program found at least 29 veterans also committed suicide in 2012.
