A new war memorial in Bradford to the 29 servicemen and women killed since the end of the Second World War will be officially unveiled today.
The ceremony in the city's memorial garden will be three years to the day when one of those honoured . Private Martin Bell, was killed in an explosion in Afghanistan after going back to rescue a badly injured colleague.
Private Bell, who was a police community support officer in the Worth Valley before joining the Parachute Regiment, was awarded a posthumous George Medal for his bravery.
His mum, Elaine Bell, said: "It's going to be an emotional day for all the families. It's no more our day than theirs, but it just felt especially ironic that it should be on the date that he was killed."
