Special mentions

In the course of researching these pages I learned of numerous deaths in unhappy circumstances, of which perhaps the most notable were the individuals killed in action, with the FAU, or by bombing. I thought of doing a Roll of Honour page, but then thought this should be extended to include others who suffered for their beliefs, and others who died in particularly tragic circumstances. So that's what this is.
