    To add to Poozey's guide above here is my video uploaded from my Game DVR app. I also did it in Nassau the same way as Poozey - killed one guard within the restricted area to alert the others then focus on the guard ringing the bell.

    Another note is that the guard has to be actively ringing the bell. It will not unlock if he stops to fight you.

    Edit: as pointed out in the comments the kill has to be done melee. Using the pistol will not get you the achievement.

    The SharkopathGot it on the second try. Once one didn't count for some reason. Good guide.

    bumgarbI found a restricted area in Kingston with a guard tower above a bell. I threw the tower gunner to the ground to set off the alarm. Then attempted assassination of the bell ringer from above. He was still actively ringing the bell, but I didn't get the achievement. Has anyone else tried the death from above method and it worked?

    I found this easiest achieved during Memory Sequence 03, Memory 05 (Sugarcane And Its Yields). After looting the Warehouse in the mission - you are literally placed right next to a guard (unsuspecting) standing next to a bell. Walk in front of him so he sees you. Once he rings the bell once - kill him. You MUST use Assassinate (X). I tried this several times with no avail the first 3 tries. Shooting the guard while ringing his bell does not work - and if you have to hit him multiple times - it also does not work. You must Assassinate (X) the target WHILE he is still ringing the bell. Good luck.

    I got this in Nassau, there is a restricted area with many guards and a bell though there are many locations to do this throughout the game. Simply trigger a fight or make your presence known and a guard will run for the bell. Kill him while he rings it and the achievement is yours. It should be noted that you have to hear the bell once. The first time I attempted this I killed the guard as he was pulling the cord and it didn't count.
