1st Bn, Royal Berkshire Regiment - A black and white photocopy of a photograph of the funeral of L/Corporal House VC. On 28 February 1912, L/Corporal House, aged 32, committed suicide in Shaft Barracks, Dover. At the subsequent inquest, Private Townley, Royal Berkshire Regiment said "Yesterday morning, about 7.15, I was doing up my boots in the barrack room at the Grand Shaft Barracks. I was speaking to a Lance Corporal, when I heard a report from the other end of the room, I looked up and saw Lance Corporal House fall backwards, I ran down to him and saw he had blown half his head off. I did not see anything else, I called out to Lance Sergeant Stroud that Lance Corporal House had blown his head off. There were six men in the room they were looking out of the window watching the Battalion march away. I ran into the next room and told another Sergeant." The verdict was suicide. His funeral took place at St James? Cemetery, Dover, with full Military Honours, in the presence of a large gathering of friends and sympathisers. The chief mourners were his mother, his brother Thomas, and sisters Daisy and Polly House.
