Does any member have any details of the suicide of a French Army Major at DBP in the closing days of the war?

Are you referring to the suicide of Lt-Col Charles Piroth, the officer commanding the artillery at DBP who committed suicide in his bunker a few days after the beginning of the battle, or the suicide in 1975 (the day Saigon fell to the Communists) of Gen Pham Van Phu, a general of the ARNV (South Vietnamese Army) who was a DBP veteran, where he served as a Lt, Coy Commander, with 5e BPVN (Bataillon de Parachutistes Vietnamiens)?
