On this day in 1846
Emily Bronte wrote the poem, "No coward soul is mine No trembler in the world's storm-troubled sphere...".

On this day in 2011
Private Martin BellPrivate Martin Bell was killed in Afghanistan.

Private Bell was deployed to Afghanistan with C (Bruneval) Company, 2nd Battalion The Parachute Regiment. He was fatally wounded by an improvised explosive device as he moved to assist a comrade injured by a separate device. He was awarded a posthumous George Medal for his actions.

Martin joined West Yorkshire Police in 2006 and had served as a Police Community Support Officer in Haworth and the Worth Valley.

"Private Martin Bell died going to the assistance of a critically injured friend in the most dangerous combat circumstances imaginable; 'greater love has no man than this'. He knew the risks all too well; twice in the minutes before his death he had witnessed at first-hand the devastating human impact of IEDs.

"The term 'hero' is overused in contemporary commentary; take a moment to reflect on the image of Martin Bell, a twenty-four-year-old paratrooper who disobeyed a direct order in order to render life-saving first aid to his colleague. For that exceptional valour he paid the ultimate price.

"Private Martin Bell's name will be carved into the chronicles of history; he will never be forgotten. Utrinque Paratus." Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Harrison, Commanding Officer, 2nd Battalion The Parachute Regiment.
