Sounds like a brave and fearless guy, bloody shite that he brave efforts and well deserved award ended up being posthumous.
Bravely like that doesn't come around too often

I personally feel that the word HERO has become massively overused. However, Pte Martin Bell, 2nd Bn, The Parachute Regiment, you are sir, a HERO. Utrinque Paratus fella, RIP.

An inspiration to us all and perhaps a timely reminder that not all British youngsters are the chav-scum that the media depicts.

In the current financial climate the armed forces are getting hammered with continued attacks on pensions, medical compensation payouts, redundancies, pay freezes, T&C's, etc. The reasons for this are that we are yet another branch of public servants, nothing more, and should shoulder the financial responsibilities with all the rest. Stories of immense acts of bravery such as this one only serve to make my blood piss even more.

RIP.
