    Suicide of a Hero:
    Marine Dylan Kemp Hangs himself after Afghanistan hell

    By Justin Penrose; Rupert Hamer

    A hero (?) commando killed himself after leaving a suicide note telling his family that Afghanistan had filled him with rage.

    Dylan Kemp, 28, got into trouble with police following his return from a seven-month tour of duty - even though he'd never been in bother before.

    He was arrested for assault during a road rage incident and last week was charged with attacking his girlfriend. Two days later he hanged himself.

    The suicide note apologising to his family and blaming his time in Afghanistan was found at the scene in Croydon, South London. Dylan's death comes as the Sunday Mirror can reveal that 67 servicemen have committed suicide in the last six years after returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

    A further 31 are suspected to have taken their own lives and 20,000 ex-servicemen are in jail or on probation.

    One of Dylan's pals said: "Afghanistan tipped him over the edge. He said in his note he was sure many more squaddies would end up in a messed-up state like him.

    "He was just so full of anger. His mental scars couldn't be healed."
