Rifleman James Stephen Brown
Rifleman James Brown sacrificed his life to save others whilst on duty in Helmand Province, Afghanistan on Tuesday 15th December 2009.
Having only passed out from training on 18th September 2009, and after less than two weeks in Afghanistan, 18 year old James and his colleague, Lance Corporal David Kirkness prevented two suicide bombers aboard a motorcycle from entering a crowded marketplace.
Realising that James and David were preventing them from reaching their intended target and causing maximum devastation, the bombers detonated their explosives, killing James and David. James and David's completely selfless and heroic action saved the lives of countless men, women and children.
James's family: his parents Tracy and Stephen, 3 young sisters Steph, Sam and Ellie, 1 year old nephew Reece, stepdad David and girlfriend Hayley, wish to honour his memory and the memory of all fallen soldiers by raising funds for Help For Heroes, a charity which James himself actively supported before he went to Afghanistan.
In loving memory of Rifleman James Stephen Brown, 3 Rifles
"Chin up, head down and rest in peace, James"
